From Leavon's early childhood years, art had always been his passion.
For many years, Leavon pursued other things but was still passionate about art, and in 2017 he completed a degree in Fine Art Painting and Drawing at Northampton University.
At university, Leavon immersed himself in painting as up until that point he was solely a pencil artist. His work is governed by a set of values underpinned by his spiritual upbringing that reflects some of his most inner passions, desires and sensitivities.
Leavon’s affinity for nature began as a child, surrounded by the beautiful scenes of the Caribbean, the spectacular colours and composition – from the subtle to extremely vibrant colours. This engaged his childish mind and that childhood fascination grew into an artistic obsession with for nature. He is particularly drawn to the sea and the sky; for their sense of spiritual awakening, solitude, nostalgia, fear and reverence to that or he who is greater.
Leavon’s work aims to capture an accurate glimpse of nature’s alluring and infinite beauty, and with his close-up paintings of the subject, he hopes to transport the viewer’s mind into the beauty and wonders of nature, and also inspire viewers to not only appreciate nature, but to recognise that nature has an origin.
