Elsha Leventis

After graduating from OCAD in 2002, Elsha went on to pursue two post-graduate diplomas - in psychotherapy at the Transformational Arts College and in art therapy at the Toronto Art Therapy Institute- so that she could help others heal through art.  She graduated in 2006 and has worked with seniors, adults and children, both in institutions and privately.

Elsha’s thesis at OCAD focussed on exploring eye imagery, which morphed rather speedily as the deadline loomed into her award winning body of work Eyescapes. Elsha’s paintings have appeared in numerous juried shows, including the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, in national media such as the Globe and Mail and Style at Home, for a brief second in a movie (The Sentinel) and HGTV host Sarah Richardson’s showcase home at the Interior Design Show in Toronto in February 2008.
