This is from my series, "State of Water United," and is inspired by my Monterey Bay swims where the humpbacks come to feed out of our deep underwater canyons.  There is so much life in this bay and we must share it and respect every living creature that uses it! This diptych is comprised of two cradled wood panels measuring 14x34 and 34x34 inches. The edges are painted yellow and the diptych 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.
