Leonieke, a Dutch born artist, has been living and working in the UK for the past 30 years.

She studied fashion in the 1980’s at art college in Arnhem. After graduating, she worked for a short period in Paris for an international trend forecasting company, creating mood-boards and styling books for the fashion and textile industry.

Moving to the UK, Leonieke joined a graphic design company, working across a broad spectrum of projects relating to the fashion industry.

This background was the catalyst that launched her on an artistic journey from commercial work, to pursue a career in fine art.
