Leslie is one of the most technically proficient artists I have ever painted with. Her many demonstrations at the various art societies are an inspiration to artists using every media. Leslie's method of teaching benefits all artists, beginner to seasoned professional. From the basic drawing to the finished picture in pastel, acrylic, oil or watercolor, Leslie will help you become a better artist.
