” Robust yet lethargic muted colors compounded with bold accents sweep from my brush as emotions run freely upon my naked canvas . Creating a bond of trust that was once vandalized . I stand before my canvas an open wound ready to heal. This I share with you. Welcome to my soul. “
Lee Leonard is an Abstract / Visual Artist born and raised in New York. Lee’s love of art began as a child ; influenced by her Aunt who is also an artist. Lee would lay on her Aunts living room floor in Greenwich Village and play with glow in the dark markers and news print for hours.
Her love and connection to art flourished into her adulthood .
You can see in Lee’s paintings that she is an emotional painter and she loves texture. In her paintings she may use cardboard, rubber bands, string; whatever she can use to bring texture into her paintings.
When she was asked what her paintings mean to her, she stated, ” It’s a feeling, an emotion that comes from inside that evolves onto a canvas. Each piece means something to me. I don’t go into it with any preconceived ideas. Each piece is an event that was personal in my life. I try not to share in hopes that the viewer can interpret what it evokes in themselves.”
