Diane Leonard is one of America's most highly respected contemporary impressionists. Raised in Boston, Massachusetts, she has the privilege of being one of only twenty-five members of the Society of American Impressionists. A self-taught artist, her work is exhibited worldwide and her first One-Woman Show in Nagano, Japan was a huge success. She has exhibited in numerous shows throughout the United States and abroad. Diane has studied with Bettina Steinke and Helen Van Wyk.
Her paintings have been collected by celebrated people from royalty to heads of state. Leonard's involvement with the community keeps her very busy. Each year she donates her work to different charities to support their worthwhile causes. She is also an instructor at the Scottsdale Artists School. Diane continues to grow as a painter, always seeking new avenues for her creative expression. The growing demand for Leonard's work is so exciting - her paintings sell as quickly as she paints them.
