This is a piece from my series, "States of Water United".  It's a nostalgic piece born out of memories of childhood swimming pools and the thrill of the slide! This diptych is made of oil paint, acrylic paint, and collage on cradled wood panels measuring 14x34 inches and 34x34 inches.  The edges are natural wood and it comes to hang.

Getting to Know Leslie

Leslie grew up in the desert and all the while lusted after the ocean. Her work is strongly influenced by her obsession with water and love of swimming. Nautical and aquatic motifs dominate her various series. To create her compositions, Leslie sources vintage photographs from libraries and museum stock collections to collage into her art. Her combination of photography and painting is intended to represent memories and emotions, respectively. Leslie brings together a wry humor, childlike joy, and an undertone of feminism to remind of us times past and offer us a roadmap for the future. Now a resident of San Francisco, Leslie is surrounded by water in her life and work.
