About the Artist
Leon is a professional oil painter, lecturer and ambassador and simply loves painting and teaching in Plein Air (in the outdoors). As long as he can imagine he has looked up to the old masters and likes to use the same, traditional approach with a modern twist. His art never stands still and he often explores new ideas and techniques in his painting process.
The outdoors are by far Leon's biggest inspiration, but his works are impressions of many different scenes including landscapes, seascapes, portraits, city scenes and still life. When immersed in the scene he focuses on pattern, design, light and shadow and he has adapted to work very quickly. This keeps Leon's art dynamic and loose and the style is carried into his larger studio works, which are often sparked by the idea of his smaller life studies.
Taking on commissions helps the artist to broaden his horizon and challenges his skills, which he also likes to share by running regular workshops.
For Leon's own pleasure and because he aims to create quality artwork that is standing up to the expectation of his serious collectors base in Australia and around the world, he only use the finest art materials available.
