Artist of the Month - Leona TobinArtist Reception: April 11th, 2015 | 4-7:00pm
Artist Leona Tobin is a contemporary expressionist’s painter who works primarily with oil on canvas. She’s a single mother to three beautiful children and a California native. Leona fell in love with art as a child, and takes comfort in the joy and therapy it provides her today. She says that all of life inspires her, and color fuels her desire to paint. She has assisted over 500 children in their creative endeavors and is an author illustrator of her children’s story, “Lilly’s Flight for Peace and the Fussyoderpus.” Her work has been shown at many venues and charity events throughout California and is currently shown at John Hanes Art Gallery in Boonville CA, and at Fume Bistro in Napa CA. Her work can be viewed online and in private installations throughout the states.
I have been blessed with a passion for creativity and selfexpression. Every painting is a story related to something I’ve experienced and also dream for. I incorporate simple line work with a lot of color and texture. My goal is to create a painting that evokes emotion while livening up a room. I hope my paintings impact people in a positive light and I hope to inspire others to open up, and also share their gifts with the world.
