Leah Farrar-White – Prima Ribbonista
Hello, I’m Leah I recently moved back to my hometown after 20 years. My husband, Howard, is a Senior Pastor for the United Methodist Church –we live right across the street. Absolutely no commute what-so-ever. We have two children, 9 year old Sophie, and 7year old Dow. They are both idea filled and very creative! I have always been an all around artsy person. As a girl my main focus was Drama, Dance and Music. In the past I have worked for Theaters, taught Drama and Speech and creative workshops of all types. I actually met my husband at an audition for a musical. I have participated in or taught many a swing choir class! Yes, soooo Glee!
Then came the Visual Art. Like a lot of people, I didn’t connect to this side of Art until later in life. It started with Sophie’s birth and scrapbooking. It then bloomed to all sorts of creative outlets. I love to quilt, knit, stitch, make cards, scrapbook and alter items. (etc.etc.etc) When I create, I love to use repurposed items and vintage-Antiquey-barginy-finds in my projects. Buttons, paper and fabric? Yes!!! and YES!!! and yes, again!!! oh and Ribbon. It makes me giddy. I have not met a May Arts ribbon that I did not LOVE. I am looking forward to sharing my ideas and videos with you!
