Leo OsborneBorn in 1947, Leo recalls his preschool years living in Marshfield, Massachusetts at his grandmother’s farm. During high school years, he won a scholarship from the Art Instruction School of Minneapolis and entered a home schooling course.

Early showings of Osborne’s paintings were seen around Cape Cod, where he spent many summers working and surfing. In 1990 he moved to the Pacific Northwest and furthered his interest in Bronze sculpture and has since produced many works. He is found often at the foundry overseeing new pieces and working with his favorite painter and friend Tim Norman.

In 2002, Leo and his wife, Jane moved to Guemes Island in the Sun Juan Islands of Washington State. Captivated by the love and joyful spirit of the island, they have together co-created “Milkwood Studio and Home Gallery.” This cottage by the sea is now referred to as a “living museum.” The studio, sculpture gardens, home and guest cottage are fused together as one entity.
