Leonie Gibbs

Leonie Gibbs has lived most of her life in Scotland; myths, legends and her love of wild animals have been the most formative influences on her work. With her strong sense of modelling and dynamic movement, her figures inhabit an imaginative world of storytelling and action played out against the wild romantic landscape of her Scottish roots. The Warrior King depicts James IV of Scotland, moments before his death. Her Pictish Queen strides like a princess out of the dark ages, born from the myths of ancient lands. Leonie drew part of the inspiration for this figure from the mounted queen with her exotic head dress depicted on the ancient Pictish Cadboll stone near her home. Leonie has exhibited widely in Scotland and England, and her major commissions include pieces for Gleneagles Hotel, the Royal Bank of Scotland and the Tarbat Discovery Centre.
