About Us

Special Announcements and Upcoming Events

Leaf Motif, established in 2003, is the vision of artist Catherine M.S. Cowles whose passion for Nature inspired a line of clay leaf sculptures more than twenty years ago.  Much has happened over the years as she and her husband, photographer and scanographer Ovie Cowles, guided the business to where it is today.

Based in Pasadena, California, Leaf Motif offers a range of home decor products including framed original leaf collages, artist selected giclee reproduction prints, and a line of illuminations which includes eKandle KuffsTM, eKandle WrapzTM, occasional lamps, and illuminated wall sconces.

Because all of our items are uniquely handcrafted, they may not always be readily available.  We offer on-line shopping for some of our items and, with others, we ask that you contact us to make a specific inquiry.  If an item is unavailable, we are happy to discuss your specific interest so that we may provide a similar item to you.

We participate in numerous fine arts and crafts shows throughout California and occasionally out of state.  A schedule of our upcoming events is available on this page.  You are also always free to contact us with questions or comments.  You may telephone us at (626) 827-7870.

Thanks for visiting.  We look forward to working with you.

Dear Friends of Leaf Motif,

We continue to monitor the latest updates with regard to the Covid 19 pandemic.  With the current concerns about the latest variant making its way across the country, it is possible the large arts and crafts shows for the balance of 2021 could be impacted. 

In the meantime, we continue to do the best we can with show planning for the months ahead.  We are currently planning to attend the Morro Bay Art in the Park over the Labor Day Weekend and the Pomona Harvest Festival (which will actually take place at the Ontario convention center) the first weekend in December.  Additionally, the Montrose arts fair that usually takes place in June has been rescheduled for October and as we confirm the details we'll post them below.

Thank you for continuing to work with us remotely for the past 16+ months.  We look forward to renewing our in person relationship with you in the months to come.

Catherine & Ovie

2021 Show Schedule:

Show:  Morro Bay Art in the Park
Dates:  September 4th, 5th, and 6th
Times:  10AM - 5PM on the 4th and 5th, 10AM-4PM on the 6th
Location:  Morro Bay Park, Corner of Morro Bay Blvd. and Harbor Drive
