In this Podcast recorded on a bright morning in May, Lucy and David took a trip to Leo's enchanting gallery in Minehead.
Inspired by his Exmoor and West Country surroundings, Leo's paintings change in style and feel as often as his subject. From the meticulous to the abstract, Leo refuses to settle on any particular genre of painting and continues to explore and develop ways of seeing and defining his landscapes through his works.
Leo has shown at the Royal West Academy, Royal Watercolour Society, and Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour. He has won The Evolver prize twice as well as numerous other prizes and been shortlisted in The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition many times and won the competition's Smith and Williamson Cityscape prize in 2015 and won first prize with his painting 'Condensation' in 2019.
Stunning depictions of Exmoor, West Country Landscapes, The West Somerset Railway and Birds are all available to buy as prints in various sizes on this site as well as original watercolour paintings, oil paintings, greeting cards and postcards.
These are also for sale in his Minehead gallery located at 24c Quirke Street / Friday Street, TA24 5UE. Find out more about Leo's work on his website.
