LEO CRANE

Leo sets out to capture the immediacy of the studio experience and the dynamic between model and painter. He practises painting and drawing from life under the guidance of Maggi Hambling.

In 2017, Leo founded Starkers with Roy Joseph Butler. Together they run regular life drawing drop-ins, special workshops and celebration events.

Leo is also an award-winning animator and Director of London Animation. He has extensive experience in the arts and heritage sector and regularly collaborates with cultural organisations from the V&A to the Hepworth Wakefield.

Leo lives in Dulwich, London, with his partner and son.
