About Mike Leavy



Mike Leavy

Artist’s Statement



I was born in England, spent years in Toronto, and live in beautiful Victoria on Vancouver Island.

After many years in information technology, I switched on my artistic side and took up painting.  I’ve studied with luminaries such as David Goatley, James Gordaneer, Nicholas Pearce and Victor Arcega,  and now enjoy painting people and places in oils and acrylics.

I’m an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, and have exhibited in their juried shows.  I also paint regularly with the Goward House Portrait Painters Group.

My paintings are in private collections in Victoria, Alberta, Ontario and the United Kingdom, and all over my house.
