Leslie Leavenworth, artist!

We love our customers! Recently we were thrilled to meet Leslie Leavenworth, a talented artist from Iowa. Leslie was here with her gal pal enjoying the Valley of the Sun and joined us at the Marketplace for a bite and a bit of creative time. Leslie is from Virginia and currently resides in Iowa. She is proficient in pencil, charcoal, pastels, oils and acrylics.  Her bio shares that she loves to ride her bike to a location and paint in oils, using a collapsable easel and the back of her bike to balance her palette…now doesn’t that sound like she’s living the good life!

While in the Marketplace Leslie did a most charming water color vignette that captured the ambiance and aesthetic of the Market perfectly!  Upon returning a few days later she then proceeded to capture the exterior of the Market thus providing a view from within and a view from the outside. Well, once we saw these two delightful works we just knew we had to have them and promptly acted to acquire!

We were so honored to meet Leslie and we’ll cherish our water colors for years to come!

Two favorites from Leslie’s gallery! One can never have enough cows!
