Leila Singleton (B.F.A., graphic design, 2003) was born in Fort Collins, Colo. She graduated in 2003 with summa cum laude honors and the Savannah College of Art & Design’s Outstanding Achievement in Graphic Design award.rnrnDoodling since she was just a few months old (alongside fellow shopSCAD artist and sister Tasica Singleton), She began as a painter, majored in graphic design and became enamored of photography along the way. She synthesizes that journey in her fine artwork, using her camera to frame things otherwise perceived as ordinary so that they become abstract “paintings”. The results are captured not on canvas, but rather in the digital format so familiar to her as a graphic designer. She employs a digital paintbrush to put the final, chromatic touches on each piece.rnrnActive in multiple artistic disciplines, Singleton regularly exhibits her fine art, photography and graphic design work. She has been exhibited in New York City’s Times Square as a part of the acclaimed Urban Forest Project; in Graphic Responses, the online component of the 15th Colorado International Invitational Poster Exhibition; in the Savannah College of Art and Design’s popular Small Works show; and by Caladan Gallery, the Fort Collins Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Northern Colorado Artist Association, among others. Her graphic design work has additionally been published in “Really Good Logos Explained” and “The Big Book of Logos 5,” and graced the shelves of CVS Pharmacy via a winning entry in the international ONE Condoms “Design ONE” contest.rnShe lives in San Francisco, with fellow SCAD alumnus Kyle Winkelman. She spends her spare time writing poetry and tending to 10 apple seedlings and one fake tree.
