LJLevasseur’s artwork is a call to action representing how everyday things we might think nothing of throwing away, can be made valuable if re-purposed.
“I am moved by the actions, history and events that shape mankind, by nature or anything that touches the human spirit. It translates into all this energy, which I can express in a positive way through artwork; I only hope it inspires the same passion, love and hope in others.” - LJLevasseur
