Leslie Newman is a self taught abstract artist living in Marietta, Georgia. She grew up in Washington, D.C where from an early age she spent her weekends exploring the many art galleries the city has to offer. Starting to draw and paint as a very young girl, she encountered an art teacher who changed her life by gently guiding her toward her life's passion – painting. Beginning in watercolor, Leslie has gravitated to abstract because she loves the freedom that it gives her. Leslie’s love of teaching has evolved out of the many requests from various artists living in the Atlanta area and from across the United States.
“I work intuitively in abstract, letting the paint take me on a journey of exploration through color, form, and shape. By adding and subtracting layer upon layer, construction and reconstruction, I work until a painting evolves out of the process. I find inspiration all around me in architecture, in nature, from a passing shadow in a window. I find pure joy in the process of painting and I hope that you the viewer will find something in my work to take joy from as well."
