Leonie studied Graphic Design at the Vakalo Art and Design College in Athens (1988-91) and Communication Design at the prestigious Art Center College Of Design (Europe) in Montreux, Switzerland, graduating with the Bachelor of Fine Arts. Her first professional steps took Leonie to Cologne, Germany (1994-1999) where she participated in founding Milk Design GmbH, a creative agency that soon became very successful with attracting a number of distinguished clients.
In 1999, Leonie returned to Greece and repeated her recipe for success by co-founding MILK Branding Professionals Ltd. Since then Leonie has been partner, creative director and co-owner of MILK, a leading branding agency in Greece for 20 years (www.milk.com.gr), and has handled in this capacity hundreds of accounts of local and international companies.
Inescapably, Leonie grows – professionally through excelling in design projects and artistically by ceaselessly expressing herself through ceramic art, sketches and painting.
For the last ten years Leonie who has its own atelier in Athens (www.leonieart.gr) finds herself feeling more and more a devotee of the ceramic art, as it combines the two basic elements of her artistic ways of expression: design and painting. Leonie has participated in numerous Solo and Group exhibitions.Offical Website
