Leonard Wilson is an Arizona native that fell in love with oil painting at an early age.  Wilson attended Phoenix Union High School shortly after Phoenix public schools were desegregated. Although Mr. Wilson considers himself a “self-taught” artist, his work can be found in many private collections.
