Leigh, with her son (photo from her facebook album). The inspiration and motivation for Anything was simple; it came solely from her son, Kaizen Alexander. A lot of the first moments as a new mom are depicted in many of Marianne-Leigh’s illustrations. This new venture can only be described in one term for Marianne-Leigh a "Blessed-Dream."
