I’m Leo and I make collage art and mixed media illustration as ordinary shapes.

My work is inspired by colour combinations, snippets of conversation and found materials. My style is flat, bold, colourful, graphic and contingent. Some people call it joyful. I’m happy with that.

A maximalist fighting with a minimalist, I love ephemera and texture – but am similarly delighted by a few shapes hanging out on a blank page.

I find my source material from all over, billboards, floristry paper, envelopes, newspaper supplements and secondhand books. I like to include text in my work too. Women often feature.

Words and pictures are equally important to me. I’m a content and copy writer as well as a maker with a background in art, education and publishing.

I live in London with my husband (a crossword fanatic) and craft-loving daughters in a house full of paper.
