About the Artist
Aia Leu is a fine art painter who works in oil and watercolour. She lives and paints in her studio in the mountains near Kenmare in Ireland where she moved to in 1989. A self-taught third generation artist, she learned the foundations of art from her parents and studied figure sketching as a teenager in Vevey, Switzerland. Her paternal grandmother is the Swiss artist Eva Aeppli.
Aia’s work draws directly from her multicultural and bohemian upbringing, which saw her raised ‘on the road’, as her parents followed their dream of a life of ‘art and freedom’. Particularly influenced by both her years spent as a child in India, and the richness of the Irish landscape her paintings reflect beautifully the diversity of her inspiration.
