His city of birth is uncertain; one possibility is Lecce nei Marsi in the Province of L'Aquila in the Abruzzo. He was active mainly in the Abruzzo. Documents from 1442 have him working in Norcia as 'Andrea di Giovanni de Leccio, working alongside Luca di Lorenzo, Giambono di Corrado, Bartolomeo di Tommaso, and Nicola da Siena. His masterworks are frescoes in the choir of the Canons of the Cathedral of Atri. These include a depiction of the evangelist St Luke as a painter. Other frescoes have primitive oddities: such as his depiction of the The Massacre of the Innocents. He also painted for churches in Celano. He also painted frescoes for San Nicola, Atri.
