Stephanie Leonard

Fine Arts Painter

Stephanie Leonard was born in Peru and lived there for 13 years; much of the picturesque but also tragically impoverish culture and the surrounding visual arts to depict this environment left a lasting impact. Several years later and now living in the US, Leonard first begun drawing and painting when her life was drastically altered upon finding out that her five year old daughter had cancer. Today, Stephanie Leonard is an artist and Fine Arts College Professor in Orange County, California. She received her B.A. from The California State University of Long Beach and Masters of Fine art degree in Painting from The Laguna College of Art and Design, CA. Her work is in private collections in the United States and in South America, it has been exhibited both in the East Coast and in diverse areas of Southern California including the Laguna Art Museum, online, in catalogues, through public artwork, and in film in the Universal Pictures feature films Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. With the use of surrealism and magical realism that can range from detailed to simplified forms, Leonard’s oil paintings often explore narratives about wonder, nostalgia, and the resiliency of the human spirit.
