Leon Loughridge

Born and raised in New Mexico, Leon had an early introduction to art through his Grandmother’s dinner parties which included many local artists. For the most part, Loughridge’s subject matter are landscapes of the West and Southwest where he was born and raised. Although he works in pastel and watercolor, he is best known for his reduction woodblock prints with his signature method of layering colors to capture the beauty of his plein air excursions. Loughridge works from his studio, Dry Creek Art Press, located in Denver, Colorado.
