This is a colorful and abstract narrative piece full of suggestive images, charts, movement and lines.  I love the architectural aspect of boat drawings and harbor structures. This diptych is comprised of one 14 x 48" wood panel and one 48 x 48" wood panel. The artwork was made with oil paint, collage, graphite, and acrylic paint.  The sides are turquoise and the panels come ready 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.
