Artist Statement

Lorna Leedy grew up on Bainbridge Island in Washington’s Puget Sound. She started out as a reader and then became an illustrator and maker of books. Later, a series of art accidents led her to fashion. Her interests intersected in the limited edition illustrated book A Very Glamorous Voyage. Her current work involves drawings on paper and fabric, sculptured fabric, mail art and drawings appliquéd on fabric and garments.
Leedy’s clothing line Fancy Pony Land was founded in 2002.  Fancy Pony Land has been shown in specialty boutiques in cities throughout the U.S. as well as in Milan and Tokyo, and featured in national and international fashion magazines. Leedy opened the Fancy Pony Land studio and shop in Marfa, TX in 2008.
Over the past decade Leedy and her Park Ranger husband have spent time in out of the way places such as Isle Royale, MI; Redford, TX; Sagle, ID; Joshua Tree, CA and Dinosaur, CO, with Leedy operating out of a mobile studio packed into their camper van, sometimes working off the grid in solar powered set ups. They have now settled down to a regular seasonal migration and currently split time between Mt. Rainier National Park in WA and Marfa, TX.
