Leslie is a quilt artist working in Deep River where she creates quilts that reflect the rhythms of her life and the sheer joy of combining colour, texture and pattern. Commissions are welcome.

Leslie has been in Deep River since 1997, sewing, teaching, volunteering and raising kids. She joined the Valley Artisan's Co-op in 2007 and spends as much time as possible with her sewing machines.

As a child, she was surrounded by visual art. Her father is a retired architect and avid gardener, and her mother was a weaver. She grew up immersed in the arts community of Prince Albert SK and enjoyed the art that filled her family home.

Leslie has been sewing for almost as long as she can remember, but only began quilting in 1997 when she began her first quilt for her daughters’ double bed. It took more than two years to complete but was the inspiration for more. She created several wall-hangings from published designs before beginning to design on her own. She concentrates her efforts on wall-quilts, from letter-sized picture quilts to larger wall-hangings, and welcomes the occasional commission.

She sees ideas everywhere and loves the endless possibilities of colour, texture and pattern that quilting offers.

Awards:
- Silk Treasures won second place in "Art in the Valley", the Valley Arts Council's annual juried art show, November 2010.
