Her work is in public and private collections in the U.S. and abroad, including the White House, Washington museums and libraries.

A resident of Addison, she is a graduate of Northern Illinois University. She is the founder of the Addison Art Guild, and part of the town’s theater guild, camera club, community band and children’s theater.
“Realism,Impressionism, abstract art … all dimensions of artistic expression are fascinating," Leiber says. "Wanting to grow as an artist, I have spent most of my life experimenting with all media. The world we see affords ever-changing (subjects) from which to draw inspiration.”
