Leonie’s art is not just a form of personal expression; it’s a medium through which she connects with her audience. Her unique creations are not confined to the canvas; they evoke emotions, tell stories, and inspire those who view them. With a keen eye for detail and an unwavering commitment to her craft, Leonie’s artwork is a true reflection of her passion.
ABSTRACT NARRATIVE ART
I am an artist who believes in conveying emotions through bold and vibrant colours, using gestural motions and large brushes to engage with the canvas physically.
My spontaneous and intuitive approach involves multiple layers, impasto techniques, and experimentation with various materials like charcoal and inks. Influenced by artists such as Karel Appel, Willem de Kooning, and Mark Rothko, my work embraces improvisation, emphasising the therapeutic power of art to convey joy and vitality.
The core principles of expressiveness, spontaneity, and vibrant colours remain constant throughout my evolving techniques. My abstract creations are windows into a world of hope, joy, and life, serving as beacons of optimism in a world often filled with negativity and despair.
They invite viewers to embrace life, find happiness in every moment, and smile in the face of adversity.
Constant experimentation and evolution define my approach, and like Karel Appel, I believe in the therapeutic power of art, aiming to convey joy and vitality through my work.
FIGURATIVE ALLEGORICAL AND NARATIVE ART
Every stroke of my figurative art is a testament to the strength of women, including myself, who have overcome emotional, physical, and mental abuse. Three out of every four women have endured some form of abuse, and my figurative art tells their stories. It’s about survival and the journey towards a future shaped not by the past but by hope, faith, and peace.
ABSTRACT ENCAUSTIC LANDSCAPES
My abstract landscapes, crafted with encaustic wax, invite you to touch the art and become a part of it. These landscapes are a canvas of possibilities, where anything can happen. They evoke a sense of openness and peace, reminding us that life is an ever-changing landscape of opportunities.
My encaustic wax landscapes are more than just visual experiences; they’re tactile journeys. As you touch these artworks, you become a part of them, immersed in a world of limitless possibilities. It’s a landscape that evokes openness and peace, a place where anything can happen.
In essence, my art breathes life into those who may have felt lifeless. It’s an invitation to explore, to heal, and to find hope in unexpected places.
