about leslie

I am a painter, primarily of landscapes and local scenes. I work in oils.  In 2000, my husband and I moved from the Northeast to Savannah, GA.  The move was transformational. I find the marshes and Intracoastal Waterway, local lagoons and scenery, and general natural beauty of our surroundings inspirational. I am inspired . . . by the beauty of the southern landscape, by the joy of children playing in a fountain . . . by the peacefulness of a southern rocker on a shaded porch.  I try to capture the textures and mood, color and light that give life to the subject.  If you are engaged by the painting, I have been successful.  The creative process itself is exciting and gives me much pleasure.  Winston S. Churchill said it well, "Happy are the painters, for they shall not be lonely.  Light and color, peace and hope, will keep them company to the end, or almost to the end, of the day."


My work is represented by Signature Gallery in Savannah, GA and can also be seen at the LAA/Sound View Member's Gallery at the Plantation Club and the LAA/Merrill Lynch Atrium Gallery, both on Skidaway Island, GA. Numerous paintings have won awards at local shows.

My husband Steve and I are business intermediaries. We own and operate Savannah Business Associates, LLC, a VR Business Sales office. I hold a GA real estate salesperson's license (currently inactive) and am a Docent at The Telfair Museums, Savannah, GA. I am an honorary member of Princeton Class of 1939, past class treasurer and secretary and currently write the class column for Princeton Alumni Weekly (PAW).
