Leo Osborne

leo osbrone
Sculptor Leo Osborne.

Born in Massachusetts, Leo Osborne recalls his early years living at his grandmother's farm, where chickens, ducks and a goat named Mary were the run of the day. This brought Leo years of woodland adventures, which in turn began his fascination with the "wild" side of life and the world of nature and spirit. It was also during this time that Leo began drawing what he felt. During his high school years, Leo won a scholarship from the Art Instruction School of Minneapolis and entered a home schooling course. His art education was furthered when he later trained at the New England School of Art in Boston.

In 1990, Leo moved to the beautiful Pacific Northwest and furthered his interest in sculpture. Leo's trademark is transforming large, rough maple burlwood into emerging, smooth forms. Many of his carved wood originals are then molded and cast into bronze. Leo is often at the foundry overseeing new pieces and working with his favorite patineur to create engaging patinas for his work.

Leo continues to investigate many mediums and potentialities in art. He refuses to get locked into a niche and play the same tune over and over. He has always been a sort of rebel. His philosophy is that “ART transcends all borders and boundaries. Each creation of our hands comes from the heart and mind and reflects the creative spirit and energy of the Universal Maker.” As a member of the National Sculpture Society and the Society of Animal Artists, Leo's body of work clearly exemplifies his fascination with the world of nature and the spirit of creativity. Leo says that "Painting and sculpture are rhythm, musical form, mood, feeling, the jazz and the energy within. Release that from wood or with paint and the story unfolds.”
