"Spring in the French Alps was absolutely beautiful. Seeing those jagged snow capped peaks exceeded my expectations. I could have stayed in the mountains all summer exploring and painting. This particular view focuses on a traditional house high in the mountains. The mountain seen in the background is Mont Blanc on the other side of the valley below. Glaciers pour down the mountainside like a river. What would it be like to live on a mountain with such a beautiful view?"

Trijsten Leach grew up in California's Santa Cruz mountains and gained an early appreciation of the landscape. That love and appreciation of the natural world brought him to study art in Hawaii at Brigham Young University Hawaii. 

After graduating Leach worked in a couple of non-creative fields for seven years before being drawn back to art. In 2017 Trijsten committed himself to creating art full time through landscape painting. 

Since then Trijsten has participated in many shows and competitions, as well as winning awards, including 1st place at the Driggs Idaho Plein Air Competition. Leach sells his work in a number of Utah galleries. He lives with his wife and two children in Utah along the Wasatch mountain range.
