Introduction Lorna Leedy grew up on an island in Washington’s Puget Sound. She started out as a reader and then became an illustrator and maker of books. Later, a series of art accidents led her to fashion. Her current work involves drawings on paper and fabric. Leedy’s clothing line Fancy Pony Land, founded in 2002, works with independent seamstresses to produce original handmade garments. These are then appliquéd with vinyl and leather by Leedy & Co. Fancy Pony Land has been shown in specialty boutiques in cities throughout the U.S. as well as in Milan and Tokyo, and featured in national and international fashion magazines. Leedy opened the Fancy Pony Land studio and showroom in Marfa, TX in 2008. Over the past decade Leedy and her Park Ranger husband have spent time in out of the way places such as Isle Royale, MI; Redford, TX; Joshua Tree, CA and Dinosaur, CO, with Leedy operating out of a mobile studio packed into their camper van. After many years on the road they have recently settled down on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, where they live year-round with their son Hazard and their dog Becky. Marfa, TX is still home and they spend as much time there as possible.
