About the teacher:
Lesley is the former president of the Colored Pencil Club of Rochester and has been teaching art since 1987 – almost as long as she's been painting. She paints in many mediums but mostly lately in oils, acrylics and colored pencils (the latter being her favorite). For botanical drawings, Lesley especially loves colored pencil because it lends more control and attention to the details that make floral and leaf work realistic.

"It comes natural to me to want to share anything good or exciting and I think that's what turned me into a teacher,” she says. “Art is nourishment for the soul and the possibilities are endless.”
