Leo Davey - Painting & Illustration

Leo Davey studied Illustration at Falmouth College of Arts in Cornwall. He now works as full time artist/illustrator in his hometown of Minehead in West Somerset where he has his studio/gallery.

Leo’s paintings depict all manner of subjects from cities to seascapes, interiors to trees and from children’s illustration to travel posters.

Tooth brushes, paint brushes, dip pens, pencils and inks all feature in the creation of his watercolours. Working from a combination of sketches and photographs, Leo punctuates his realist depictions with stylized pattern and a distinctive language of marks and colour.

Leo won the “Evolver” prize in 2010 and has been a prize winner at at Milfield, Ilminster and A303 open exhibtions. He has shown at the RWA and has had two paintings accepted in “The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2012” which will be shown in London’s Mall Galleries later this year.

You can see more work by Leo at his Studio/Gallery on Irnham Road in Minehead or visit Leo's website.
