Leeza Doreian
Visual Arts Instructor

Leeza Doreian is a visual artist who received her MFA from the University of Texas at Austin. Her work has appeared in group and solo exhibitions in numerous galleries and museums, including: Artist Space, PS1, John Michael Kohler Arts Center, and the Barbra Walters Gallery at Sarah Lawrence College.

Originally from England, Leeza came to United States with her family when she was fairly young spending many of her formative years in Pittsburgh, PA. She was fortunate to have been raised in a family that encouraged curiosity and self determination -- qualities that have been important to becoming an artist and maintaining a studio and continuous art-making practice. Having lived and traveled all over, Leeza relocated to the Bay Area in 2008 after spending a decade in Brooklyn, NY. She began volunteering at Creativity Explored in 2009 and joined the teaching staff in 2010.

Leeza is very grateful that, by working at CE, her love of art has a place where it can be of use in such a tangible and daily way.

I can’t envision a group of people with whom I would rather spend my days, or work I would rather do. It is beautiful and humbling to be here.
