About the Artist
Leslie is a nurse by profession and an artist by avocation. Since moving to Iowa 15 years ago, she has fallen in love with the landscape and people. Leslie is experimental in her approach, trying a variety of mediums and subject ideas. Her artwork is an eclectic mix of landscapes, portraits, and abstracts reflecting this journey of exploration.
My work is representational with an emotional tint. I paint out of the joy I feel about nature and people. I connect with God and my best self when I pick up a brush.
