The Art of Leonard Paul
“I paint with a pencil and draw with a brush” (Leonard Paul)
Known internationally for his exquisitely detailed portrayals of nature and its creatures, award-winning artist, Leonard Paul, a First Nation Mi’kmaq visual artist, was born in Halifax in 1953 and resides in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Leonard considers he embodies the better elements of two worlds: Mi’kmaq ancestry and Euro-centric values in mainstream art. He loves to roam around the countryside and river banks with his family and two dogs, seeking inspiration for his artworks. This inspiration takes many forms as seen in the slideshows on the following pages.
