About Léonce Lemmens
” I always try to capture the ephemeral: that which lies beyond words or reason. It just comes naturally. Whether I am travelling the world or walking around my own garden. My inspiration: daily life, people I meet, occurrences, colors, mix of cultures, emotions, what touches my heart I try to translate into my work.”

Dutch abstract artist, born in Maastricht – The Netherlands.
Léonce Lemmens creates contemporary modern paintings that are at once perfectionist and deeply feminine in capturing the ephemeral, that which lies beyond words, beyond reason. The paintings have an abstract expressionist aesthetic, consisting of endless layers of build-up colors and mixed textures. Working with acrylics, oil, collages and mixed media on canvas, she paints personal and timeless pieces that tell a story of their own.
During her study at the Art Academy she focussed on fashion and textiles. A love that never truly passed away during her long, meandering career. Work experiences in corporate organizations and healthcare made her realize how important art can be in spaces, hospitality industry and private residences.
Since 2014 Léonce Lemmens works as visual artist. She currently lives at the Dutch countryside, after several years staying alternately in the Caribbean and The Netherlands.
