FROM LEON ROULETTE'S WEBSITE:
Leon was born in Southern California in 1959. Early in his youth, he read about naturalist like John Muir who captured young Leonâs imagination.
At the age of twelve, Leon enrolled in his first painting class and discovered that he possessed a natural talent which soon evolved into a lifelong passion for art. The periods of art that inspired him the most were the 17th century Dutch, the 19th century Impressionist movement and artists of the 20th century. While many young men of his age idolized sports figures or rock stars, Leonâs idols were the likes of Jacob van Ruisdael, Pierre Bonnard and Albert Bierstadt.
Early on in his career Leon held a variety of art-related jobs while he continued to paint such as picture framing, restoration work and art instruction to individual students.
Commissions for his art both large and small came in from private and corporate patrons. Leon, being an avid outdoorsman himself, enjoyed producing paintings that depicted wildlife and sporting genres for a small sporting art gallery in Southern California. Soon after he was approached by a large publishing company to manage their fine art serigraph studio. He was instrumental in the production original fine art serigraphs by renowned artists such as Eyvind Earle, Robert Peak and Peter Max. In addition to the serigraphs, Leon produced cartoon sericels for studios such as Walt Disney, Hanna Barbara and Warner Brothers.
With so much experience in the world of art Leon has learned the importance of hard work and an open mind. He keeps his work fresh and spontaneous by painting subjects that are near to his heart but is always willing to try something new. Leon looks forward to hopefully more years of painting the beautiful places that inspire him. When time allows, Leon attends gallery showings and enjoys meeting the people that collect his work.
