Lelia Gina Canter, an artist of Scots-Irish and Cherokee descent; is a native of Eastern Kentucky and an Honorary Kentucky Colonel. Her artwork offers a unique selection of original paintings, limited edition prints, greeting cards, T-shirts, wearable art, and home décor items that reflect the history and culture of the Appalachian region as well as legends and lore of various cultures. She studied art at Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University, & UNC-Asheville.
Her ongoing work includes several series of paintings that illustrate Cherokee, Celtic, Appalachian, and various mythological & cultural legends.

She is particularly drawn to nature and animal subjects along with the interplay of light, shadow, and color in her compositions. Her commitment to capturing the legends and lore of the Appalachians as true reflections of the land and its inhabitants was cultivated at an early age in her artistic family and she continues to strive to preserve and honor the history and culture of her ancestors as well as Appalachian heritage of the past.
