Jesse de Leon was born and raised in Houston, Texas. His interest in art began as soon as he could pick up a pencil. During grade school his love for art blossomed into a passion. He was trusted and encouraged by his academic teachers to share his talent with his school. On many occasions Jesse was asked to create banners for school graduations and banquets.
While working at a design firm, his interest in creating murals and faux finishes was born. He has since painted murals, canvases, and faux finishes for designers, businesses, and individuals across the country. His work varies from impressionism to the abstract, and he finds that the composition and use of materials have a strong influence on his creative process.
In addition to murals, Jesse has been commissioned to paint original works of art. His passion to inspire a new generation led him to work for an impoverished school in Haiti. He travels to Haiti every year to teach students and bring hope through the murals he creates. The discipline and dedication required to work for himself has encouraged Jesse to expand beyond “creating to live” as contract artist and working more towards “living to create” as a fine artist.
