Hello to all artist and art lovers! I am Leslie Eliza age 29 and I love the arts in many different forms. I reside in a small town in Oregon. I came from Mesa, Arizona at the age of 12. I am a self taught artist, and proud of it! My passion is painting and photography. I am so pleased you are taking the time to read this. I started painting about 7 years ago to help with my anxiety and discovered it was more than hobby it became an obsession. So much of my work has alot of emotions painted into it.
