This is a re-worked piece in which I covered up the majority of an older piece using Italian plaster, collage, acrylic paint, and new imagery. I simplified the original, but some of its history seeps through in a very layered and interesting way. This piece is on canvas adhered to a cradled wood panel with finished edges. The edges of the canvas were left frayed to add a raw and rustic feel. 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.
