Leeke, a lawyer turned “innerpreneur,”
Since 1995, Leeke’s mixed media collages, wire sculptures, and paintings have been exhibited in the Washington, DC. metropolitan area, North Carolina, and Kentucky. Her artwork was featured in Heart and Soul Magazine in 2001. Leeke's art work often reflects her passion for issues affecting people of color and women. In 2002, she created and donated Our Womanist Spirit and I am my sista’s keeper wire sculpture collections to The Women’s Collective, a direct services organization that serves women living with HIV/AIDS. Her concern for people living with HIV/AIDS motivated her to create Ask The Troubadours Who Have Come From Those Who Have Loved, a wire sculpture collection dedicated to African Americans and World AIDS Day. The collection was donated to Howard University Hospital in 2003.
