Secrets of my MIND to YOUR EYES
Leslie Elliottsmith, her geniune thoughts on her art unlocked
Creativity is a state of mind. It derives from a need to share my vision. Artists are inherently observers of their environment. I see the uncommon around me and take note of minor items that most people would pass on by. Each of these are stored in my memory and in my photographs. When composing a work, the imagery is the stepping off point that evolves into the narrative.
Leslie Elliottsmith is an fine artist and for the past 38 years an art educator. She has worked in many mediums and feels no limitation on which to use or explore. Her overwhelming desire is tell a story through the imagery.
