Leah Junquera is an artist living and working in North Carolina.


Leah Junquera is a painter from the foothills of the Adirondack Park in NY. Her paintings oscillate between the physical landscape and inner emotional space. Junquera finds solace in the natural terrain from her home. She paints remote scenery void of human presence in an attempt to preserve these wild spaces. Through connecting with nature through her visual rendering, she is simultaneously holding onto her past relationships with the land and herself, as well as looking ahead to an unknown, daunting future. Her newest works come to terms with feeling a loss of control of these lands and her own personal connections. Junquera received her BFA from SUNY Plattsburgh in 2014 and her MFA at UNC Greensboro in 2021. She currently works and resides in the triad of North Carolina.
