Artist's Statement

"I have always wondered about the lives of the creatures who share this earth with us. The animals cannot speak their own stories. folklore is a verbal tradition. My paintings represent their stories. There connection to the earth, the earth spirits and the land. Sometimes you live in a place long enough that the stories of that land will come up out of the earth and show you things you would never have imagined on your own."
Leslie's oil paintings are a mix of realism, abstraction and storytelling. The intention is to draw the viewer into the greater depth of the composition and experience the sensual awareness of the internal landscape of her crafted stories of myth. The subjects of equine, avian, animal and floral are playfully and skillfully rendered in oil. The sense of the soul of the animal is powerful and immediate. Her work is an conduit for the energy surrounding us. She considers her work a form of problem solving, how to make the environment work within the elements of space, form, line and light.
Leslie's pencil drawings are an expression of realism, her concentration on light and shadow, captures the essence of the creature she chooses for her subject. The beauty of the horse in motion and in form inspires her.
