Davette Leonard Special
Davette Leonard is a true gem of the Rappahannock community. She is an artist, mother, calligrapher, and teacher. Each role does not preclude the other but instead serves to make her the fascinating and complex woman that she is.
Her paintings explore the beauty and timelessness of nature through incandescent realism. To say that her work is done in classic form is an understatement, she exudes fine art in everything she creates.
She has recently opened her home to the public. You can visit her at Thornton River Studio in Sperryville at 11971 Lee Highway.
