About Lawrence Leitch
The paintings of Lawrence Leitch whisper New Zealand. Born 1958 the young Leitch attended Wellington Polytechnic School of Design. In the early 1980s he lived and worked in the United States. On his return to New Zealand Leitch began a career as a full time artist, gaining nationwide recognition for his outstanding watercolours. The demand for large scale works prompted Leitch to develop and master the highly personal technique we see today. Working in finely applied and diluted acrylic on gessoed prepared panel with subtly glazed finishes his work achieves the extraordinary.
Leitch's solo exhibitions of 2004 and 2010 were both complete sell outs. With worldwide sales, the demand for this artist's work exceeds the supply.
