|Leo's granddaughter Anita Kinle has
undoubtedly been blessed with a talent for creativity and
Her style dubbed 'integrationism' is pervasive
throughout her work, because she includes objects embedded into oilpaint,
often mixed with sand.
These objects include gold-plated mosaic leftovers from grandfather's
workshop, dried flower heads, pieces of smashed mirror to create
reflection, even an arrangement of Native American arrowheads.

end of the 20th century, but Anita's life has taken another path. She is a certified
Naturopath, is a 2014 Iron Woman (Challenge Roth) and lives with her husband and two
children in the city of Fürth, Bavaria. She is very
active in community service and has an 'army' of volunteers and
benefactors who helped her founded the following projects:

Laufclub 21 (a running
club for adults with Down Syndrome founded in 2008),
Thomas Benjamin Kinle
Beratungsstelle (a counselling center for families with questions
about Down Syndrome),
Fürther Stiftung fur Menschen mit
Down-Syndrom (a charity to benefit families and their loved ones with Down Syndrome),
