Lucky Leone

After unsuccessful careers in the legal, medical and engineering professions (where wardrobe and moxie are apparently overruled by a lack of proper education and its corresponding certifications), Lucky Leone is currently a professional artist whose work ranges from sculpture to painting to electronics to video to works that utilize elements from all four of these disciplines.

Leone earned a BFA and an MFA from RISD and an MFA from San Diego State University. He exhibits mostly in academic galleries and museums. He has taught classes in sculpture, 3D design, drawing, life drawing, Foundation and sophomore seminars at RISD, Bristol Community College (MA), San Diego State University (CA), The School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts (MA) and Brown University (RI).
