Pamela Leonard graduated from the National College of Art and Design in 1964. Her love of landscape has led her to create images set in areas she knows well, giving them an enduring and timeless quality. She has designed 16 stamps for An Post and won an award in Japan for stamp design. D. O'Sullivan Graphic Supplies awarded her the prize for Graphic Work of Distinction at the Annual RHA Exhibition in 1991.
She has been a member of Graphic Studio Dublin for twenty years and has had numerous exhibitions both paintings and prints. Her work is in the National Self-Portrait Collection of Ireland and the Watercolour Society of Ireland's permanent collection, both at the University of Limerick. Other collections which hold her work include the Office of Public Works, the Arts Council, P&O Cruises UK, and HQ Global Work Places (The Netherlands).
