A former ‘bodyman’ (car technician), the last thing Leo expected to be doing when he came back to Saint Lucia from England over a decade ago was making craft products. (Leo generally likes to restore old furniture and do the bodywork on cars). He assumed that his job in Saint Lucia would be working in the motor industry just as he did in London.
Leo started making craft items purely by accident. He wanted things to sell in the gallery, but for one reason or another, most people would not give him anything. So, one day he decided to take matters into his own hands and started making things himself.
