HI! My name is Leana Fischer.

I’m an artist, designer, and instructor in Fayetteville, Arkansas. My goal as an artist is to inspire delight and celebrate the beauty that is found every day. I try to keep my eyes opened to the world around me and share what I see with others. I do that through painting, drawing, and teaching. I'm endlessly fascinated by natural rhythms and and strive to capture both the structured patterns and playful whimsy of the beautiful things I discover. Watercolor, known for both its limitations and unpredictability, is my preferred medium for achieving this effect.

May We Fly was named on a whim but has come to mean many things for me. At the core it represents my dream and my hope that we might all make this world more beautiful by finding that which we were made to do, and doing it fully. I have found over the course of starting a business that it is not a solo endeavor by any means. "We" need each other. Though I happen to be the one with my name on it, my customers, friends, and family are who really make this little business what it is.

Thank you for helping me fly, friends. May this place be a small source of inspiration for your own pursuits as we learn how to fly together.
