A PORTRAIT by Duncraig artist Leanne Pearson will feature in Skin Deep 2016 at Kidogo Arthouse next month.

The exhibition, to run from January 21 to 27, will showcase a range of approaches to portraiture by 13 WA artists.

It aims to enhance an appreciation of the genre, with artists available during the exhibition to hold daily workshops and demonstrations.

Pearson is known internationally for her portraits, with her rhythmic brush strokes capturing a moment in time that conveys a sensuality both captivating and enduring.

Her use of colour and particularly light is what sets her pieces apart and give her work its unique signature.

Kidogo Arthouse is at Bathers Beach in Fremantle.

The exhibition will be open 11am to 4pm daily, with opening night 6pm on January 22.
