This is a piece from my "States of Water United" series and is a playful abstract of watery pool effects.  It is colorful, bright and as relaxing as a soft summer's day by the pool.  This diptych was made with oil paint, acrylic paint, collage, and graphite on two wood panels with finished white edges. The top panel measures 6" x 54" and the bottom panel is 32" x 54". The artwork comes 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.
