About my work
Hello I'm Leslie!
I'm a visual artist that enjoys working with a variety of mediums including; oil and watercolor painting, ceramic and metal sculpting, printmaking, textile design, and jewelry design. My current body of work primarily consists of pottery and jewelry design. I have worked as a pottery instructor in the Bay Area for the past 8 years. However, I am currently taking my work on the road!
Traveling has allowed me to explore new mediums and processes of creating. I have recently been processing my own clay from the land I currently reside. (Check out my photos below for a step by step guide!)
I enjoy creating one of a kind pieces, and my favorite way to work is through commissions. So if you have a vision, feel free to contact me and I can help bring it to life!
Play with clay!
No clay? No problem. You can create your own workable clay from the soil under your feet!
Locate soil without too many rocks or plant matter in it.
Fill a bucket/tub 1/3 of the way with soil.
Pick out as much plant matter/rocks as you can, leaving mostly soil.
Fill the rest of the bucket/tub with water.
