Leonard A. George
​​Leonard A. George was born in Lytton BC and later moved home to nstla'tko or Coldwater, one of the five Nicola Bands oiginally the Scw̓éxmx (people of the Creeks or Nicola Valley) originally the Stuwix, who were the Athapascan Nicola-Similkameen tribe.

Fine Art has been a lifelong passion for Leonard, having both artist parents as well as other extended family of carvers, painter and crafters and generations of artists on both parents' lineage. Coming from a family of four children, he was raised by his mother Dorie (who was an artist) after losing his father (who was a carver) to cancer at a young age.

Pursuing his education in Fine Arts, Leonard successfully completed Fine Arts at NVIT and continued onto his studies at the Enowkin School of Fine Art in Penticton.

Leonard has developed skills in many mediums of art including carving, painting with oil and water color, airbrush painting, wall murals, multi-piece wall murals, drum making and art design, Stencil, print-making, greeting cards.

Leonard has a combined 20 years of experience in the Fine Art industry.



"I tend to work in acrylic medium on canvas or any surface that is like canvas and if possible, natural pigment such as sand, wood and soil.

Mother Earth is my first priority in any art piece that I do. Natural material for me has a spiritual connection which keep my priorities in line.

In most of my pieces I tend to paint a black background where it appears the layers I create become 3D. In my perspective, images I create with a top view, the "Guardians Perspective" like an angel or the Grandmothers and Grandfathers watching over you, protecting you.

I thrive to make my art different and I have struggled most of my life to define my talent. I have always recycled items that were either found or bouht. I know there is a spirit in everything I created by hand, and it is up to me as an artist to release that spirit within. My talent is painting on a large scale canvas, but I carve, work in metal and traditional items.

Leonard A. George, Nlakapamux
