Leigh Alfredson

Leigh Alfredson (known for over 20 years as Lee Jones in the chalking community) is a professional street painter living in the Orlando, Florida area and has been street painting for almost 25 years. Her company VIBRANCY DESIGN provides professional street painting services, as well as street painting festival consulting services. Leigh has traveled all over the United States, Curacao, and Italy to paint, and helps organizations and non-profits hold street painting events as fund-raisers, or as an added aspect to an already established event. She also enjoys teaching street painting in schools all over the country, keeping the art form alive by teaching our youth, as well as teaching adults in a group setting or one-on-one. www.learntostreetpaint.com

Leigh grew up in Madison, WI where she attended art school. After graduation, Leigh worked in ad agencies, graphics studios, and printing companies before opening her own design studio in 1990. In 1994 Leigh was introduced to street painting when she agreed to participate in the Rotary Orlando 1st Annual Street Painting Festival, although somewhat reluctant since she received a “D” in pastels in her art school media class!

Leigh’s style is graphic realism, and she loves to do portraits, animals, or reproductions of Masters works such as Michelangelo, Caravaggio, and Bouguereau. Leigh has produced over 360 street paintings and produces street painting and pastel drawings for some of the major Orlando area attractions.
