Leah has been awarded the John and Elizabeth Newnham Pring Memorial Prize as part of the Wynne Prize at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. Commonly known as the Pring Prize, the prize may be awarded to the best watercolour by a woman artist. It was established following a bequest by Bessie Pring – herself a watercolourist, who died in 1965 – in honour of her parents. It was first awarded in 1966. Leah’s winning work Arid garden, Wollongong, can be viewed on the AGNSW website
