      Leon Kortenkamp is a San Francisco Bay Area writer and artist who lives with his wife, Ginny, in Belmont, California. They are the parents of five grown children. He holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana.

      His work has been exhibited, published and collected throughout the United States.  His recent writing includes short fiction illustrated with brushed-plate monotypes, and his recent exhibitions feature works on paper, paintings and mixed media assemblage. 

      He grew up in rural Iowa, and memories of those formative years are often reflected in his work.  It is from this perspective that he examines the vicissitudes of contemporary urban life.  His work often features a resolute consideration of constrained emotion lurking in the mundane, reflecting his conviction that ordinary objects and everyday events are deeply charged with spiritual reality. 

     He is a deacon in the Archdiocese of San Francisco, and a professor in the art department at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont, California.
