I love Northern California Wine Country and followed the fires as best I could online. Several of my friends who are artists lost their studios and their homes.  It is still on fire as I write this!  Since all my work is about water, I wished the fires a big dousing as is reflected in this work. Everyone will recover and be strong again!

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.
