Leo Davey

Leo went to Falmouth College of Art where he studied illustration. He now  lives and works in his hometown of Minehead in West Somerset on the edge of Exmoor where he has his studio/gallery.  Leo became well established with his detailed illustrative watercolours in the early 2000s, however his latest work sees him branching out into different media, creating exciting painterly landscapes which are remarkably different to his previous work.

In recent years Leo has won the “Evolver Prize”, he has regularly shown at the RWA both in the Drawn show and annual open, had paintings in “The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour”, “The Royal Watercolour Society” and “The Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2012, 13 ,14 & 17” at London's Mall Galleries and  won the competition’s “Smith & Williamson Cityscape Prize” in 2015.
