Leo is a Brazilian/British living and working in London.
She has graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in 2011 with a First Class Honours Degree in Ceramic Design.
Since graduating from her BA she has set up her ceramics studio in North London.
She has exhibited in many Art fairs in London, such as the London Design Festival and Craft Pavilion.
Since then, she has felt the need to develop and change the direction of her work.
Coming to the Royal College of Art has helped her to step into new opportunities, allowing her to expand into the process of approaching a pure experimental practice with different materials that go through a series of alchemy and transformation in the kiln during the firing process.
She has discovered a new passion for research based bodies of work, capturing time and location, investigating artist glazing and the technical qualities of ceramics. Combining soil pigments with her ceramic art, using the landscape as a source of inspiration, she has been exposed to new artistic critical thinking processes through her MA course.
Leo plans to continue and expand her research and artistic growth by doing residences, as well as discovering the beautiful qualities of each land site in order to gain further inspiration for her work.
