I am "Window of the Soul" artist, Leigh Jordan. I started making models at the age of 5 and have never really stopped! As an adult I became a Graphic Artist, progressing onto Theatre Design, Scenic Artist and Model Maker, and finally dedicating my full love and attention on my own creations. I am passionate about my artwork, it filters into every part of my life, its not what I 'do', it's who I 'am'. I chose the name for my vocation very carefully. As Shakespeare said, "The eyes are the windows of the soul", and its the eyes of my models I always make as the focal point.
I try to make them captivating, to bring the viewer back to gaze into them time and again. To fall in love, perhaps! I have spent my adult working life using my artistry in large scale projects for the theatre industry, designing and creating scenery, sets and props from Shakespearean production to Pantomime! I am now in the fortunate position to be able to apply this knowledge to my own creations. I have won many international competitions and have many awards, mostly Gold and Best in Show. Each of my models has been hand made and is a one-of-a-kind, and meticulously hand painted to bring the most amazing realistic skin tones. I only use the highest quality Genesis Heat Paints that will withstand the test of time! I use ProSculpt Polymer Clay which is so strong and durable, strong enough to become a treasured family heirloom.
