Leila Cothran is a painter and illustrator.
In 2007, she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of a career in art and created "Illustrated Ink".
Leila's art is inspired by her experiences and love of Mexico (she lived and studied painting in San Miguel de Allende), traditional tattoo design, Catholic icons, and folklore.
She adores carnivals, treasure hunting, writing letters, old cathedrals, birds, fairy tales, watermelon, Christmas lights, and the seaside.
She resides in Austin, TX with her family.
