Leela Schauble

Born in Melbourne, Australia, 1989

Leela Schauble is a Melbourne based artist working primarily with photography and video. Her practice meditates on themes of ecology and human-caused climate change.

In 2018 Schauble participated in an Artist Immersion Program with LABVERDRE, a program that took her deep into the Amazon Rainforest where she worked with artists and scientists. In 2015 Schauble also embarked on an artist residency to the Arctic Circle which informed her Masters research looking the human impact on the environment.

Schauble received a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours), majoring in Painting from Monash University in 2011 and a Master of Fine Arts Research at The Victorian College of the Arts in 2017. She is a prize-winning photographer who has exhibited locally and internationally.
