Elsamari Botha

“Thanks to Leonie E Brown, I now have a workable website! Her dedication to helping others at great sacrifice to her personal time, as well as the wealth of experience she has gathered over the years, has been such a great source of help, direction and focus for me. Thank you Leonie for supporting unselfishly, other artists who are just starting out.”

Belinda Mesecke

“Leonie is a natural-born teacher. She just can't help herself! Even when you're just popping in for a visit. She has this amazing eye, and years and years of accumulated experience in creating art and teaching art. Her own work is robust, textured, layered in both technique and meaning, vibrant and full of life and hope. Her creativity explodes on the canvas, and calls to one to look deeper. Her use of colour is extraordinary, experimental, and bold. It indulges the eye in layers of luxury.”

Belinda Mesecke

“Taken on an amazing journey by this faithful artist and teacher. An amazing gift (not just the paintings!) “Art is so much more...if you allow it to be! Love art, love creative minds and talents, see the heart revealed, love the creator!””
