Leanne Haase Goebel
Writing about visual art is my passion. My goal is to reflect the myriad ways creativity is expressed and to convey the soul of the artist in a way that is accessible to the reader, yet challenges them. Writing about art completes the artistic process by providing an intelligent viewer reaction. I strive to write informed observation and make judgments that are more than just opinion.
I am an award-winning arts journalist and was selected as one of twelve U.S. Journalists to participate in the 2009 NEA International Arts Journalism Institute in the Visual Arts. Additionally, I am a 2007 Creative Capital|Andy Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant recipient, a member of the International Art Critics Association (AICA/USA), the National Arts Journalism Program, and the Society of Professional Journalists. I have a B.A. Degree in English Literature/Creative Writing/Art from the University of Texas, San Antonio. I have been a writer and editor for more than 25 years.
