Leslie Saris studied architecture and fine art at the University of Southern California. After graduating in 1996, she immediately began to design and create art for both commercial and residential spaces. Leslie grew up and continues to live in Southern California where she has created a large body of work using several innovative techniques. She views her diverse collection as a holding place for her thoughts and energy while striving to place abundant strength into the process of creating art so that it will speak to and entice the viewer. Leslie's oil paintings have been described as both complex and seductive. Her strong interaction of structure and color reflect her academic background. She honors her love of Old World architecture by giving a patina to her modernistic work. Delightful visual surprises abound in the adventuresome juxtaposition of the abstract with the real. She mixes soft and bold colors and textures as if she were dressing your walls with beautiful fabrics. Leslie has received numerous awards and her paintings have been displayed in various galleries throughout Southern California. Her paintings have been showcased in publications including: San Diego Home and Garden, Angeleno, Better Homes and Gardens, Home Magazine, DIY Better Homes Spring 2005, and the book, Better Homes and Gardens Real Life Decorating.
