About the Artist
Leslie Elaine began doing prolific amounts of artwork when she was in preschool. Her bedroom was her studio, and she used any medium available. Much of her early artwork was done in magic marker, since Leslie Elaine loved bright colors. As a result, her teachers nicknamed her "Rainbow Girl." During her elementary years her parents offered her art lessons, but she declined, saying, "I already am an artist!" They didn't argue. Her eye for color and composition plus her ability to draw people were well beyond her years and seemed innate. In high school she spent two years at Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School's Center for Performing and Fine Arts. There she had the opportunity to take ceramics, digital art, theater, voice, and illustration. Still, her most productive times were at home, so during her senior year of high school she is back to doing her art exclusively out of the home. She works on multiple pieces at a time, and keeps canvases on hand in case a new idea comes to mind. Currently she is active with acrylic painting on canvas, collaging with magazine scraps on cardboard, digital art, and photography.
