Native Bostonian Leigh Harrington has spent three decades exploring the arts, culture and history of her hometown, venturing beyond The Freedom Trail to sketch live models in the galleries of the MFA, chase down minke whales in Massachusetts Bay, and sample the Hub’s best whiskey smash. She enjoys eating out at Boston’s fabulous restaurants, speaks un peu de French, and has an overly enthusiastic passion for yard sales. Formerly an avid traveler (Strasbourg! Tunisia! Cape Breton!), Leigh and her husband have a daughter Violet, and Leigh fills her free time chasing around a toddler and renovating their 125-year-old home.
