Leonie Lacouette

My work is created from a palette of basic shapes in combinations that are not only beautiful, but playful as well. Materials include hand-painted, stained, and natural woods. I also use special patinas to give my hand-colored copper and other metals a warm, almost painterly feel. Basically I’m a Manhattan girl transplanted to the countryside of Upstate New York. My work reflects that, blending stark, minimalist geometry and comfortable, approachable beauty.
