About "Spread Like a Fire "

Fire purifies gold, as fire tests faith.
I do not know the way of the fire, but He does.
I do not know the way of the road, but He does.
Faith is more precious than gold, gold perishes, but fire changes the nature of faith.

What matters most is how well you walk through the fire. (Charles Bukowski)

As hope kindles hope, millions more will find it. By our efforts, we have lit a fire as well - a fire in the minds of men. It warms those who feel its power, it burns those who fight its progress, and one day this untamed fire of freedom will reach the darkest corners of our world. (George W. Bush)

'I am a wandering eye poet, an eclectic color fanatic. I want my paintings to leap off the wall and overwhelm you with their tactile, layered, chocolate thick, color and texture.' Leonie.e.Brown Artist

My work, like my life, is a refelection of my life's journey. A progression over time of learning how to deal with the past, live in the present and not fear the future. But what I've learned, is that good decisions are based in trusting God and the people He surrounds me with.

The process of learning and painting has a simbiotic relationship. My work is complicated, because I am by nature an analizer and thinker. I want to understand why, what and where, and within that processing, I try reflect the values which I live by: Believe in God, believe the best of others, forgive, move on.

But like the process of giving bith, change is a slow and painful process. It takes long. I've learned that it is ok to make mistakes. Sometimes the best wisdom and the best work flow out of those mistakes. The hardest part...is forgiveness.'

About Leonie

Leonie Brown

'I am a wandering eye poet, an eclectic color fanatic. I want my paintings to leap off the wall and overwhelm you with their tactile, chocolate thick, color and texture.'

Passionate, expressive, urgent, often using palette knives to scrape and make marks into the paint.

Leonie's current body of work focus more on South African landscapes, using thick impasto paint with lots of texture and color. She describes the process of painting as, passionate, expressive, urgent, often using palette knives to scrape and make marks into the paint.
She is also is a multiple award winner and has taken part and either been placed or won some of the most prestigious awards for Fine Art in South Africa, which includes the following:

* Gregoire Boonzaaier Art Bursary, First prize, 1985.
* Potchefstroom Talent Festival: First prize, 1986.
* Schweikcherd Art Bursary for Painting.
* Winner of Volkskas National Fine Art Competition.
* Placement and First Prize in Fine Art Category, 1986.
* Rolfes Impressions.
* Placement in top 10 nationally: Total Exhibition for Young Artists

Her Abstract work has been described as Abstract Expressionism, but this has not limited Leonie's oeuvre; her realistic work contains and conveys the same explosive energy as her conceptual creations.
With the use of extremely thick impasto paint, bright and unusual color combinations and her own secret intriguing technique, her work tends to overpower the space it occupies.

She believes that the work in itself should be sufficient and powerful enough to carry out the message she is attempting to express. For the last few years she has been focusing on establishing herself as a serious investment artist. She describes her current work as Romantic Turnerism influenced by the likes of Constable, Turner and South African Artist, Errol Boyley, and Adriaan Boshoff.
She has been named as: the new Errol Boyley of South Africa, as well as an artist with the ability to paint like the Old Masters.
