Leni D. Anderson


Born in Los Angeles, Leni D. Anderson explores historical/contemporary issues and events in the United States and the world at large using religious and secular images, icons, and symbols in his artwork. Medieval and Renaissance art provide direction for his work, which plays an important role in Anderson’s life, especially in dealing with his chronic illnesses, including lupus. Art allows him to channel his negative feelings into a positive accomplishment. Anderson has exhibited throughout his home state of Ohio.
