Creator of Artists Resource & Lead Facilitator
Leona created Artists Resource in 2011 with the Mission “To bring people together, to nurture Creativity and facilitate Transformation – for the benefit of the individual and the community.” She started with one small Art club in North London and in just a few years had grown to teaching in Schools every day and hosting Art Parties and Classes at the weekend. Most recently Leona has provided Art workshops for the England football team and BAFTA.
Leona has a strong background in material processes and techniques, having a degree in Applied Arts and applying that throughout her career. Prior to setting up Artists Resource, Leona worked for a foiling company, managing concession stands in Harrods, Hamleys and UK Trade Fairs and made Mosaic Murals for School Playgrounds with a local Artist. She also worked on the Art Dept for various independent films and was sponsored by a leading paint manufacturer to make promotional videos for their products.
Leona particularly thrives on Community Art and Group Projects, as inspiring others in the Art-making process is central to her work. She loves to bring people of all ages and all different backgrounds together – to create something new and brighten up dull spaces. Leona specialises in Sculpture and Mosaic and has her own Public Artworks in Mile End (E3), Muswell Hill (N10) and in various public and private sites in London.
