We Talk With Leon Holmes

TRAVELLING ARTIST – Take yourself out of your comfort zone!

Interview With Kathy Anderson

How long has art been part of your life?

It’s hard to remember a “start”. I’ve gone through so many stages – all the while keeping my easel painting going until I could finally devote all my time to it!

Interview with Vladimir Volegov

When did you first start painting?

I started to paint and draw when I was 3 years old, but didn’t know that I would be an artist then. I painted unconsciously, on a subconscious level, on a whim. I didn’t try to do something like everyone else, I just expressed my feelings through painting 
and drawing.
