Heather Leonard


Having always done well with art subjects in secondary school, Heather Leonard returned to school as an adult to complete her sixth form certificate in drawing and painting at Tokoroa High School in 1989, finding the teacher of that year to have made all the difference and making her realise how serious she was about painting.

“I realised that art and painting was something I wanted to do every day. As a watcher of people and having an understanding of body language, I enjoy art with an expressionist style, not wishing to paint in a realistic way, I want my own interpretation of the subject to be the art, and not to render an exact copy of what I see. My work often has a humorous aspect, as I realise most people respond to humour.”
