Leo Started Painting at an early age and excelled at art during his school days, even selling paintings while he was still at school! After leaving school he went to Dublin to paint portraits and street scenes as a living. He then moved to London and France continuing to paint before returning home to Ireland.
Leo had a successful first exhibition in Downpatrick in 1977. However he felt he wasn’t finished travelling and left again for France. He travelled through Europe and ended up in Spain, eventually settling in Marbella for a period of time.

Returning to Northern Ireland in the early 90’s he had built himself a considerable reputation and was in constant demand for commissions and exhibitions leading to numerous prizes for his horse paintings.
In recent years Leo has won many prestigious awards including the Anna Cheyne Award for the first artwork to be accepted for Lisburn City, the Northern Art Prize (all Ireland) and numerous others for horse and landscape paintings.

Leo’s work is becoming increasingly collectable with his distinctive and individual style, his work is popular with collectors as far as the continent and the USA.
