About the Artist
Dennis Leon (1933 – 1998) was born in London, England, and received his BFA, BS, and MFA from Temple University. An artist and educator, Leon consistently explored the subject of the natural landscape. He was first inspired as a child by the moors of Yorkshire and then by his subsequent travels throughout the United States and abroad. Leon’s art emerged from the observations and memories of his experiences within these various environments. His body of work includes site-specific installations, collage, drawings, pastels, and sculpture in wood and bronze.
