Leon Holmes is an award-winning Australian artist, lecturer and ambassador of plein air (open air) painting. He chooses to work on location as much as possible in order to capture the transient beauty of the light and landscape. His work is dynamic, adventurous, constantly evolving and his unique style captures the essence of the natural light and breathes life into his paintings.

Leon has spent a number of years living in Europe and travelling abroad painting alongside some of the world’s best artists. He is regularly invited to exhibit and teach at high-profile international art events, including shows in the USA, Holland, the UK, Greece, Poland and his homeland Australia.
