About Me

Leif Kruse


Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to view my work! It really is a never ending progression; change is the only constant. Hopefully while viewing my work you’ll find some inspiration and feel a sense of wonder and intrigue. I work mainly in high quality acrylic, but include charcoal and various mixed media at times. Beautiful line work really speaks to me, and simple charcoal drawings are usually how my paintings begin. Most paintings have several other attempts underneath the outer layers. I don’t plan out a finished piece, but I do rely heavily on intuition and letting the marks evolve and drive the next.

I’ve been fortunate to travel to some amazing places during my childhood while living on a sailboat, and I still keep that desire to travel at heart. After early childhood in Maryland, a brief stint in Fiji, and living on a sailboat in the Caribbean, I received an Arts degree from beautiful Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL. College certainly expanded my horizons, and introduced me to new ways of seeing things. Since then, I’ve had a slightly erratic journey of creativity  and dry spells, but the desire and need to create never went away. 

My father was a traditional historical maritime painter, and of course has inspired me in many ways. There are also so many other artists that have really intrigued me, but I’ll include Francis Bacon, Egon Shiele, and Gustav Klimt as a few main influences. 

I’ve had the fortune to have many group and solo art shows and be included in online exhibitions over time, as well as doing design work for many companies, both large and small. For now, I’m focusing on producing more personal work and I’m putting a hold on commissions until further notice. 

Thank you and enjoy!
