This is from my Dive Deep series which highlights vintage deep diving suits that were super cool and like pre-astronaut suits! After all the ocean is the last frontier.

This piece is composed of acrylic, phototransfer, oil sticks, printmaking and graphite on a cradled wood panel with natural edges. It 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.
