Emily Leonard paints expressive botanical studies and fruitfully layered landscapes. Through a series of transparent glazes, Leonard abstracts flowers and trees into vibrant compositions rife with movement. Layers of color and delicate linework create gossamer thin textures that complement the fragile beauty of her subjects. Meditative pastels soften the intricate edges of petals and branches, creating a lucid portrayal of the sublime, resilient corners of nature.
Emily Leonard is a Nashville native who also works in New Mexico. She received her BFA from Furman University. Leonard has been published in magazines and catalogues including Garden and Gun, Southern Living and Studio Visit by Open Studios Press. Her paintings are included in numerous private and public collections around the world, including the Tennessee State Museum, the Nashville Courthouse, Swedish Hospital in Seattle, and UBS, Nashville.
