Artist Kippi Leonard

During the last 5 years Kippi has been discovering and practicing many different mediums and techniques through her experimental abstract work in charcoal, pastel and acrylic.   It is through the discovery of alcohol inks and their rich depth of color paired with an unbridled fluidity that she found her art began to truly come to life   Her work includes a custom mixed color palette. She utilizes pouring, her hands, air, brushes and gravity to guide the ink, working both at an easel and flat on a table.  Her ink work is bold and expressive.  Her mixed media work is often abstraction in mark making utilizing black and white acrylic paints, metallic pigments, charcoal and subtle finger painted oil pastels.

Kippi is influenced by her love of color and design in residential interiors.  She believes that there is a connection between where people live and what they surround themselves with.  She creates art with that relationship in mind. She credits traveling the world to locations such as Italy, Israel and Hawaii with all of their unique characteristics, rich heritage, fascinating people, lush landscapes, iconic architecture and historically significant colors as deeply influencing.
