Susan Leonhard is a native californian and third-generation artist.  Susan began painting at age 10 and describes herself as a self-taught artist with the benefit of creative genes.  Having grown up in rural surroundings, Susan's paintings reflect her greatest inspiration, her love of nature.  She enjoys painting the local Southern California beaches as well as canyons and whenever possible, travels to the island of Kauai, which has become her favorite destination and place of inspiration.
In early 2014, while snorkeling in Kauai, her contemporary series of paintings "Underwater & Beyond" came to life.  "I wanted to capture the surreal beauty and peacefulness of being under the water.  I experimented with my palette and technique to capture the reflective light, the transparency of the water and the depth with various perspectives.  The paintings are both vibrant and at the same time serene." 
 Susan is currently living in Laguna Hills and exhibiting locally in the Southern California area, which include:  Artist Eye Gallery in Laguna Beach, The La Jolla Gallery,  Artisan Gallery at Mission Viejo Country Club, Hanalei Art Gallery, Kauai & The Gray Matter Museum of Art. Her paintings have been featured in publications such as, "The Art Lover's Cookbook," "Gladys" magazine and "The Creative Way."  Susan is proud to have several collectors, including the hospital where she was born, St Joseph Hospital in Burbank, Ca.  She also enjoys participating in painting demonstrations at corporate events at the Anaheim Hilton, Montage Hotel & St. Regis Hotel in Laguna Beach.  Susan exhibits at local art festivals,  including Laguna Beach  Art-A-Fair, Balboa Island Artwalk,  and Beverly Hills Affaire In The Gardens.
