Leonard Lapierre

Born: 1928  |  Died: 2014

Leonard Lapierre. Sculptor. Woodcarver. Gaspe, Quebec. Active 20th century.

Leonard Lapierre worked with drift wood and other ‘as found’ materials. He made sculptures of animals, birds, musical instruments and anything else the took his fancy. He practiced his art most of his life, was wildly imaginative and had a wonderful sense of colour. He didn’t sign his work. (A Rooster by Lapierre is set as the background to Levasseur’s website.)
