Leonard Savage was born in Holy Cross, Alaska. He grew up experiencing long summer days with continuous sunlight while exploring
the wilderness where the Yukon River flowed.

Alternately, the winter brought long nights of bitter cold. During these days, Leonard stayed indoors while hearing the stories told about the days when the only way to get around was by dog sleds and boats.

When he was 12 years old, Leonard's family moved to the city, Anchrorage. Adapting to the new lifestyle, Leonard realized his artistic impulses would be a way to adapt to his new circumstances. At a younger age, he had started carving bone, antler, stone, and walrus tusk.

Now, walrus tusk is his preferred material for carving. Leonard uses walrus tusk to tell the story of his youth amongst the wildlife.
