LEI SAINT JAMES
Lei Saint James (b.1987 in Luxembourg), lives and works in Berlin, Germany. She studied at the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York (USA).
Known primarily for her achievements as an actress in Luxembourg and abroad, Lei Saint James (Leila Schaus) explores painting and the technique of weaving as a new way of expression. Paralell to her career as an actress, she devotes herself to visual arts and is always busy painting, photographing or exploring her newly found interest in weaving. Instead of a canvas with colorful splashes she introduces colorful weavings, putting one dazzling colorfield next to another.
She explores abstraction in a minimalistic way, primarily producing very small painings.
