About the Artist:
Leah Kucharek merges her love of history and horses in her series of War Horse paintings commemorate the role of horses and mules of WWI and WWII, whose sacrifices were as great as the soldiers they fought alongside. There was a deep connection between horses and soldiers and how they leaned on each other for courage, sharing their fears equally between them. For soldiers, war horses were inspirational figures, acting as morale boosters in the darkest of times. There is a sense of nostalgia, heroism, truth, and honor in remembering them.
Leah is a graphic designer and award-winning oil painter. She is also a dedicated volunteer trustee for the Warbirds of Glory Museum in New Hudson, Mich., where she donates her time and artistic talent to help rebuild a piece of history (B-25 bomber) and educate youth on airplane mechanics. She’s helping create a memoir of our country’s past to inform and inspire future generations.
The Michigan artist has a Bachelor of Arts in Commercial Art and Graphic Design from Central Michigan University.
