Herb Leonhard was born in Munich, Germany but grew up in the United States. One of his earliest memories was of a series of German children's books beautifully illustrated by Fritz Baumgarten. This, along with a childhood spent within the pages of comics, inevitably led to a career as an artist with a love of many of the classic illustrators, both traditional and contemporary, including the Pre-Raphaelites, Maxfield Parrish, Alphonse Mucha, N.C. Wyeth, Brian Froud and Roger Dean.

Herb's over 25 year career as a professional illustrator and graphic designer has earned him both regional awards and local acclaim. He remains able to observe the natural world around us with a sense of wonder, and sees every subsequent painting and drawing as a new learning experience.

Herb has illustrated over 25 books, his published illustration works include: "Lyrics" by Tori Amos, "A is for Alliguitar: Musical Alphabeasts" by Nancy Raines Day, "I Know a Librarian Who Chewed On a Word" by Laurie Knowlton, "Leonardo's Monster" by Jane Sutcliffe, "A Southern Child's Garden of Verses" by David Davis, "Way Out West On My Little Pony" by Jan Peck, "Saint Patrick and the Three Brave Mice" by Joyce Stengel, "Billy's Mountain" by Steve Richardson, "Kyleah's Tree" by Janet Muirhead Hill, "An Inmate's Daughter" by Jan Walker, a series of classic fairy tales for Steiner Korea and his own stories, "The Faerie Garden Coloring Book", "Fae Nouveau Coloring Book" and "Sir Norman & the Dreaming Dragon".

All paintings are acryilic with oil marbling, 16"x20" (2000 - 2001)
