Leonard Matte

Leonard recently retired from teaching in B.C. and is a new resident of the Camrose area as of August 2023. The strength of Leonard's acrylic paintings lies in his expressive style celebrating the flow of nature through the use of broad, loose brushstrokes of vibrant colours and rich tones incorporating a wet-on-wet technique.
