Leslie understands the source of creation driven by passions of the intellect and soul. Art for Leslie is a form of communication, sometimes visceral and sometimes direct. For her, the purpose of art is making the viewer feel loved and healing and enlightening the viewer. Leslie creates her own mediums and adds new twists to more traditional mediums gyrating between thumbing her nose at tradition and leaning on it. Leslie is inspired by exploring new subjects in her work and mixing science with art. Recent subjects include symbiosis in nature focused on pollinators, music soundwaves and positive binary code mantras. Leslie’s current work is primarily created through a layering and removal process she has developed.
