Leo trained as an illustrator at Falmouth. He has become well established with his detailed illustrative watercolours, however his latest work sees him branching out into different media, creating painterly landscapes which are remarkably different to his previous work.
In recent years Leo has won the “Evolver Prize”, he has regularly shown at the RWA and had paintings in “The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour” and “The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2012, 13 & 14” at London's Mall Galleries. He won the competition’s “Smith & Williamson Cityscape Prize” in 2015.
Leo is currently based in his home town of Minehead where he has his studio /gallery.
