Leon Stokes

Leon’s passion for art started at a young age but, having joined the Army straight out of school, he never really had a chance to pursue it. It wasn’t until 2017, during a difficult time, that he felt the need and desire to pick it back up again. “I really enjoyed escaping reality through painting and have since tried to use it as a form of 'mind distraction'. When I have really tough days I try to prevent disassociation with life by attempting to keep my mind engaged and hopefully achieve something positive as a result."
