Leontia Reilly (BA Honours Contemporary Creative Practices, 2006)

Leontia graduated from our University in 2006 with a degree in Contemporary Creative Practices. Since then, she has both worked at and run different galleries in London and abroad, in addition to organising and running her own art workshops.

Many of our alumni enthuse about how Leeds Met helped shape their lives, and Leontia is no exception: “My course helped me to always endeavour to be self-led – it really developed my ability to lead projects from their conception to their completion. I also learnt how to think conceptually – a great asset in this line of work.”

While Leontia would not want to repeat her student experience (“I wouldn’t want to go backwards!”), she would highly recommend Leeds Beckett to others, particularly in light of our great facilities, the quality of the lecturing staff and the diverse course programming.

Leontia is currently the Managing Director of the London-based Leontia Gallery, which she opened in April 2014. In her spare time, she enjoys travelling.
