MIXED MEDIA ARTIST (PA)
Leslie worked in the commercial design industry as a designer and account manager for more than a decade, but her true calling has always been the fine arts. What excited her both then and now were the possibilities for combining aspects of these two genres.
After leaving her design career to raise a family, her creative energy discovered new directions. Surprised by the inspiration she felt watching her young children’s unfettered creativity, particularly how they would spontaneously use the art materials she provided them in completely unexpected, non-traditional ways, Leslie began wondering how she could expand the use of her own materials. She found herself working vigorously into the late night hours after her children were asleep, experimenting with new ideas and the potential they promised. This exploration continues to ignite her artistic passions today, as she examines and interprets various art mediums in unique and original ways.
Born and raised in Radnor, Pennsylvania, Leslie received her B.F.A. from Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio and studied at the Maryland Institute of Art. Her paintings and mixed-medium works have been shown in numerous exhibitions over the past twenty years and hang in several private collections.
