Leo Naugler is one of Nova Scotia's
best known and loved folk artists. He is the youngest of the Naugler
boys and was featured with
his artist brothers Ransford and Bradford in the National Film
Board's award-winning documentary Folk Art Found Me.
Before beginning to create folk art in 1988 he owned an automobile
body shop. Many of his works were featured in a Cross Canada Exhibition
in 1996. His zest for life and
humour come through his carvings and paintings. His quirky art and vibrant
colours are an absolute joy. His works continue to be very sought
after by collectors
of Folk Art. His works are in collections around the world such as The Art
Gallery of Nova Scotia and The Museum of Civilization.
