Leo really cares about students. I knew my interests & objectives mattered & we worked on a variety of projects, from color theory paintings to M.F.A. applications to Columbia University, NYU, & Cornell University. Leo is well connected & worked in an above-and-beyond way to radically transform my life. Funny how this happened as we worked on reinforcing my confidence in my vision & abilities. A life-changer. I got in to one of best M.F.A. programs in the country in two genres.
Leo helped me revise a manuscript that I cared so much about but couldn't bear to see how much work was still possible. That Leo was able to guide that process, which was emotionally difficult for me, in a way that supported my vision & felt encouraging & insightful throughout, changed my life. The fact that Leo was able to work with text & visual art, which is what my project entailed, was exceptionally well-suited for my vision. Thank you Leo!
A really fun, smart, & kind person. We had fun & I learned A LOT about abstract art & acrylic painting techniques. Thanks Leo!
Leo is a compassionate, dynamic teacher who works to motivate students immerse themselves in their medium & develop their intuitive powers in conjunction with a strong reading / listening practice or study. Leo develops trust & reciprocal compassion & respect to foster a safe environment in which students respond to suggestive critical feedback with strength & openness. An incredible teacher.
I've worked with Trinidadian students, Chinese students (3-10 year-old children & adult businessmen). The majority of the students I've worked with have been college students: international students, undergraduate students & graduate students.
