Leo didn’t choose to be an artist. He feels compelled to do this work, like he was born to paint in the tradition of the Old Masters. The Old Masters are profound in their interpretations of life, and art provides a deeper, more meaningful way for him to connect with, observe, and interpret the world. In the act of creation, he feels connected to something greater than
himself. This universal feeling transcends time and space. Art is the divine line to God. Art is an expression of humankind and has been with us from the beginning of civilization. He believes this need for visual communication is part of a vital need to feel alive – to document life – and to be a part of the life around us. Art making provides a way of seeking truth. Art will always be with us. It is part of who we are.
