art classes news

Local artist Leona Ottenheimer is offering a number of art workshops in the upstairs gallery of Legend Tours. So, I want to take the time to share her extensive bio with you:

Leona Ottenheimer grew up in the small coastal community of Long Harbour,
Placentia Bay. She enjoyed drawing and painting from an early age.

After leaving high school, she continued on her artistic path by enrolling in the
Commercial Art course at the College of Trades & Technology in St. John’s. She
later studied Graphic Design at Lawrence College and completed a number of
Visual Arts Courses at the University of Windsor, in Ontario.

Leona has also attended, facilitated, and co-ordinated numerous workshops and
art classes with instructors from Newfoundland and across Canada, including
Gerald Squires, Gordon MacKenzie, Scott Goudie, Barbara Dorey, Michael
Whitelaw, Henry Vyfvinkel, Lloyd Pretty, Edwin Matthews, Ed Roche, Mary Nunn,
and Diana Dabinett.

Her work is exhibited in homes, galleries, and shops throughout the province and
abroad. See below for an example of her colorful pastel paintings called Awaiting the fish and Signal Hill.

Today, she lives and paints in St. John’s.
