Born in 1942 Leonard Hollands studied art initially at the Heston and Isleworth Evening Institute whilst also an architectural trainee, and then, on a one to one basis, under Bertram Armitage, son ofAlfred Armitage, minor artist of the Newlyn School. Pursuing a career in architecture and surveying, and from 1971 when he was ordained, also in the Church, his painting had to be part time, although always a consuming passion, but in 2003 he began to paint full time.
I have lived in Torbay since 1997 and have always had a love for art in all of its forms and if I wanted an 'art fix' I would generally head for St Ives, a place synonymous with art. I was sure thathere in the Bay we probably had a similar abundance of creative talent but where was it, how to find it? What was it that places like St Ives had that we were lacking? What is stopping Torbay being for Devon what St Ives is for Cornwall?

By that time I had already been working successfully with paints on silk and, following my formal studies, my interests expanded across various media and subject matter. Many of my inspirations stemfrom my detailed macro photography of the natural world. I am fascinated by the wealth of colours and textures nature provides, having lived near Dartmoor for many years. Movement, texture and colour are the main elements I look for in my landscape painting.
