About Leslie

 I'm Leslie! I am a woman working in a male-dominated STEM field. I create because it is the only time I am free from both external societal expectations and an internal fear of failure. 

I create hand-stitched and layered paper pieces with a storybook feel. These pieces are built from hand-painted paper, often repurposed. I hope these paper stories help viewers rediscover that carefree feeling of not being afraid to have fun and make mistakes too.

Feel free to contact me about commissions, collaborations, wholesale and exhibitions.
