About

ILIA aka Leigh Ann EdrichHello, thanks for stopping by.  My name is Leigh Ann Edrich, I’m a multi-talented artist and sign all my works with my pen name: ILIA.  I was first introduced to The Arts when growing up in a very talented family – both immediate and extended family.

Although I had a very strong purpose to write and create art when young, I went down a few paths that didn’t work.  I was lucky enough to meet a very good friend and mentor, Ralph E. Grimes.  He was a Master of Fine Arts from Columbia University and used the Old School Method of teaching: VALIDATE THE RIGHTNESS.  In doing so, he revitalized my art ability and I have truly blossomed.

The thing that I have done from the beginning is give back to my fellow artists by being a mentor myself.  It is my purpose to revitalize The Arts and Performing Arts to realize greater heights.  I use the Old School method of VALIDATING THE RIGHTNESS.

I also took my mentoring to a higher level, as follows:

  • Every suggestion and instruction that I put on this site has been tested by myself for workability.  It doesn’t go on this site if it doesn’t work.
  • I learned how to set up and run a business.
  • I learned how an artist can easily market their works without high costs or being time consuming.
