Leonard Butt

Leonard has been involved in the visual arts in one form or another for most of his life. As a child, growing up in the context of a mobile military family, toys and companionship often involved creating and animating plasticine figures, as well as following the lives and ongoing challenges of comic book heroes. The early grounding in these experiences continue to find their voice in his artwork.

After graduating from the Alberta College of Art and Design where he majored in sculpture, Leonard went on to study ceramics, photography, art education, counselling and art therapy at the University of Calgary, University of British Columbia and University of Victoria. For many years Leonard has participated annually in both the Sooke and Sidney Fine Arts Shows, where he has been the recipient of multiple awards for his sculptures and his paintings.

Although Leonard has been an art instructor for over 35 years, he continues to view himself as a student and approaches the mystery of the creative process with curiosity and wonder. He is committed to the ongoing process of discovering new creative possibilities and the pursuit of meaningful imagery. A career in counselling and teaching has only deepened Leonard’s appreciation of our common search for meaning and connection. His allegorical artwork is most often an attempt to give expression to those existential questions that invariably arise and to explore some of those themes that bind us on this common journey.
