Leigh McCarthy lives and works in San Francisco. She has been acurately describes as "slightly obsessed with shipwrecks" for years and is not sure why. (So please don't ask.) Incidentally, she is the type of person who never outgrew listening to sad breakup songs because they make her happy. She recently participated in the Open to the Elements residency at Headlands Center for the Arts and worked with the collective, Observatorium, who were really inspiring. She is also part of the kickass collective called LA Art Girls the Institute of Glacial Risk Managmement and the LA Art Girls.
