Donald Leong is a graduate of the University of the Arts. He retired in 2006 after forty plus years in the advertising and marketing business.
After retiring, he pursued his love of drawing and started to paint in various mediums; experimenting with the various properties of each. Ultimately he settled on watercolors as his medium of choice. Don’s reason is that watercolors transparency and luminosity are difficult to achieve in other mediums.
He is an active member of the American Watercolor Society, Chester County Art Association, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, and Board Member of the Philadelphia Watercolor Society and Delaware Valley Art League.
Don has been in numerous juried and non-juried group shows in the region; more recently a two person exhibition at the Chester County Art Association; which was a huge success. His works are in private collections both in the USA and Canada.
