Leigh is a poet, songwriter, guitarist, singer, photographer, painter, collage-maker, teacher, and political activist. This multiplicity of interests might be exhausting for many. For Ms. Harrison, such diverse activity stems from the belief that we must unleash all of our personae, and it comes to fruition in the concept that one should explore all of one's talents in the service of some higher good. Ms. Harrison has worn many other hats; she is a painter (her watercolor fantasias are surreal and pointillistic), and photographer whose work documents such diverse subjects as murals, stained glass, neon signs, vanity license plates, clouds, wetlands, and the blues scene in New York City.

For many years Ms. Harrison taught English, Poetry, Short Story, College English, and ESL, at several colleges and universities, including Queens College & York College (CUNY), and at private schools in the New York area, as well as in the NYC school system (grades K-6, JHS, and HS). She recently released her 1st spoken-word CD, filled with work from her poetry collection, "Our Harps Upon The Willows," and the first 12-song CD from her duo with Bobby Perfect, "BlueBird At My Window."
