about the artist
My work is inspired by the Intracoastal Waterway, broad expanses of grasslands along the coast and the ever-changing seasons, colors. light, mood, and textures of the landscape. In real life you often pass a scene or vista without taking particular note but I want my oil paintings to encourage you to stop, look and, hopefully, to "feel" the presence of the space. An easy, loose painterly style contributes to bringing this beauty to life in oil on canvas.
My work can be seen in the LAA/Sound View Gallery at The Landings Palmetto Club, at local art fairs, and here on my gallery pages. --Leslie Fitzgerald
Although inspired to paint by the sites and sounds of the surroundings, I am equally inspired simply by the discovery of the process. As Winston Churchill put it, "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."
Outside the studio, Leslie works with her husand in their business Savannah Business Associates, LLC, helping local businesses, when they are ready, sell their businesses.
