Artist Biographical Information

Doris Leeper (1929-2000) was an acclaimed visual artist and active environmentalist, and an internationally recognized sculptor and painter who executed a number of large-scale commissions. Her work has been acquired for over 100 public collections held by corporations, museums and individuals throughout the country. She graduated from Duke University with a degree in art history in 1951, worked as a commercial artist for a decade and in 1961 she began a full-time career as a sculptor and painter. She is credited with being instrumental in the creation of the 58,000-acre Canaveral National Seashore, created in 1975 by an act of Congress. The preserve remains the longest stretch of undeveloped beach on Florida's east coast. She was the driving force behind the founding of the Atlantic Center for the Arts in 1982. Leeper was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall of Fame in 1999. https://dos.myflorida.com/cultural/programs/florida-artists-hall-of-fame/doris-leeper/
