In that moment nothing else matters except the desire to live. Absolute truth is something that is true at all times and in all places. It is something that is always true no matter what the circumstances. It is a fact that cannot be changed.

Leonie's current body of work focus on contemporary landscapes in Encaustic and mixed media, using thick impasto paint with lots of texture and color. She describes the process of painting as, 'passionate, expressive, urgent, often using palette knives to scrape and make marks into the paint'.
