  1. Hi Rob, Both Shelley and I are very impressed with your work, really like your style. Would love to get to the exhibition in Shrewsbury- will try and get there this sunday if we can.


  2. Hi Rob, it was my birthday last week and what a lovely surprise I got!! Ian told me that painting was sold after I admired it, what a fibber. It’s up in my living room and looks really great. I’m really pleased, thankyou.

  3. We liked your work so much in the RBA exhibition. Many places familiar to us. We run a festival at St Stephen’s Church Gloucester Road SW7 4RL with an art exhibition from June 2 – 9 2013. We’d like to invite you to exhibit.

    1. Hi Adrian and Catharine,
      Thank you for your comments, I am glad you like my work.
      I would be interested in exhibiting at your festival in June. Perhaps you can let me have the details.
      Rob Leckey

  4. Hello Rob my name is Scott and i am a pupil at Campbell College Belfast. Currently i am working for my ‘A’ level exams and one of my focus on the topic of ‘Boats’ and whilist researching the internet for artists who have produced work on a similar theme and this is were i came across your work. I would be highly appreciative if you could respond to this as soon as possible. I will look forward to hearing from you soon.

      1. Thank you very much for answering so soon Rob and i do apologize for how long it has taken me to replay. I was wondering if it would be ok for me to interview you via either on your website or by a email, to find out the relevent information I require. I know it is coming up to christmas and you might be busy coming up to it so i will send you 5 questions at a time.

  5. Hi Rob. Jus tdiscovered your work from The Artist and really love it. Do you give demostrations to groups. We are in Somerset, but could put you up for the night!! and make it worth your while – but it may be something you hate the thought of. Please let me know and then we can chat more.

    1. Hi Tor
      Many thanks for your invitation and I am delighted you like my work.
      Conducting a full demonstration with a completed work is difficult as I work in stages that require time for glue and ink to dry in between. Also generally the minimum time required per work is three to four hours.
      What I could do is a series of small demonstrations of how I shape and use the collage and apply paint with rollers, wood and cards.
      I could back this up with a Power Point presentation that I have to prepare for a talk I am giving next year on the construction of a painting.
      If you feel this may be appropriate I would be happy to consider your request.
      You can also contact me on 01743 872297.

      1. Thanks Rob for such a quick reply. Your suggestion sounds great and I think it would be really interesting for people to see how you get started. Perhaps you could bring a finished painting, and show us through the stages. There may not be time for the whole power point presentation. Anyway we can sort out that later I am just thrilled that you can come. Could you do June 25th and let me know your fee. I will ring you on the weekend. Yours Tor

        We could perhaps book you for a whole day workshop in 2014 aswell where we could have more time.

  6. Hello Rob,
    Do you have an email address that I can send a message to? I love your work and would like to find out about a possible painting as a present.
    Many thanks

  7. Hello Rob. I saw your paintings at the St Mary’s Church exhibition in Shrewsbury last week and was impressed and admiring! I’ve recently joined the Shropshire Art Society so maybe our paths will cross at some point. Kind regards, Rebecca

    1. Hi Rebecca
      Thanks for your comments, I am glad you like my work.
      I am sure our paths will cross as I am the treasurer for Shropshire Art Society.
      If you wish you can see more of my work at the Church Stretton Art Festival Exhibition starting 28th to 10th August as I am the “Guest Artist” and will be showing about 20 works.

  8. Hi Rob
    You may or may not remember me but we met in Elys Wimbledon recently. Thank you so much for spending the time to chat about art and your work. It made a change from just the mundane things in my working life. I have financial security, but my love is art and writing and wish I could devote more time to them.
    I love the paintings on your web page. You are a true artist and an inspiration. i have so much more to learn, as as I mentioned I am still a novice – but am working on improving my art work.
    Maybe at some future date you will exhibit in London.
    Once again thank you.
    Kind regards to you and your wife
    Dana ( from Clarins)

    1. Hi Dana,
      It was a pleasure to meet a fellow artist.
      Thanks for visiting my website and I am glad you like my work.
      Next time I am in Wimbledon I will call in and check on how you are getting on with your work.
      Clarins shaving cream excellent!

  9. I’ve heard Rob that you are off to my native Northumberland.
    Do you think you’ll be portraying Bamburgh Castle?
    If so could you let me know?
    Thanks, Ann.

    1. Hi Ann,
      You have heard correctly except that we have already visited Northumbria just over month ago. We had a great time and I came back with loads of photographs and inspiration. I have already completed 5 paintings including Lindisfarne, Dunstanburgh Castle, Craster and I am actually currently working on one of Bamburgh. All these will presently appear on my website and you are more than welcome to visit to see them first hand.
      Incidentally as a matter of interest how are you aware of our visit to Northumbria?

      1. I live in Church Stretton but was born in Alnwick. Long story short Sue Hockaday told me. She is a big fan of yours & worked hard on the CS Arts festival.

  10. Hi Rob. Really so enjoyed your workshop in taunton the other Saturday. I finished my painting and have even framed it !! Hope to catch up with your exhibitions if we come up to Shropshire. Regards Tor

    1. Hi Tor,
      Good to hear from you. Really glad you finished your painting and have got it framed, from what I recall I can imagine the end result is really good.
      Jan and I had a great time with you all at Taunton, an event we will always remember.
      Should you make it to Shropshire let us know we can arrange to meet up.
      Keep up the painting.

  11. Dear Rob,

    On Saturday 27th January we are holding an artists’ workshop with Pip Seymour and Rebecca Wallace, manufacturers of the Wallace Seymour range of acrylic, oil and watercolour paints.

    Their paints and materials have a growing reputation in the UK and beyond, and this is a unique opportunity to explore, experiment and learn with the makers.

    The workshop will take place between 10.00 and 4.00 in the Unitarian Church on Shrewsbury High Street. We’re limiting numbers to ensure that all attendees have a valuable and enjoyable experience (it will be fun!), so if you would like to attend please indicate your interest as soon as possible.

    We have many of Seymour Wallace’s products available through our website, and more in the shop. We aim in time to have the full range of their products available either in store or on order.

  12. Hi Rob,
    Hope you are well.
    I am thrilled with the painting you were commissioned to paint for me to mark my retirement. I just wondered if you could let me know the colour and brand of paint that you used for the frame. `I would like to use it on another painting I have in the same room.
    Hope you don’t mind me asking
    Best wishes,
    Chris (Minton)

    1. Hi Chris,
      Glad you like the painting, not always the easiest with commissions but I did enjoy painting it.
      My framer hand paints the frames and I have been using this Farrow & Ball Oval Room Blue for sometime now as it seems to suit my work and is popular customers.
      Enjoy your retirement, no doubt more time for walks!
      Best wishes
