Lenia Staley has been working in the visual arts since before she can remember. Her mother was a design student and taught her from a young age the basics of multiple art forms including set design, drawing, painting, costuming, theatrical face painting, clay sculpting (figurines & buildings), and an endless list of other crafts.

Lenia's skills in paint and set design have been called on for multiple Live Oak Theatre productions. For example, in the LOT production of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat she designed and painted the setting backdrops. She loves working with young children and sharing her skills. She plans to teach her students the basics of art and give them hands on skills to use in daily life and professional environments.
