Leroy LeFlore is a prolific Galveston Island artist in love with and inspired by the stark beauty of this unique barrier island. The close proximity of wetlands and beaches, harbor and ship channel, wildlife and subtropical skies, provide daily inspiration and endless subject matter. He spent his career as a marine engineering which accounts for his interest in maritime history and nautical subject matter seen in many of his paintings. He paints in oils and watercolors, plein air and studio. He is active in the Galveston Art League and sits on their board as Member Show Director. He is also a member of Oil Painters of America, Outdoor Painters Society, Southwest Plein Air Artists, American Society of Marine Artists and National Society of Artists.
