Brad LeDuc grew up in a rural community in north central Kansas. As a young boy, he found a passion for creating before attending college to become an art teacher. As an innovative educator, Brad strives to promote an environment that both challenges and nourishes himself and his students in addition to working on his own art. His work creates dreamy environments inspired by rural Kansas that are illustrative, surreal and often nostalgic. In 2013, Brad was named the Milken Educator for the state of Kansas, was the 2013 Distinguished Kansan for Education and later was a 2014 fellowship recipient from the Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes. In 2018-19, he was named the Outstanding Secondary Art Educator of the Year for Kansas through the KAEA. He currently resides in Topeka, Kansas with his wife and two boys and teaches art at Seaman High school.
