Local Saint Louis Artist, Leslie Willis, has been painting in her own unique style since childhood. Her following includes collectors in Central America, Europe, and the United States. A self-described Abstract Impressionist, she has devoted her time exclusively to her painting for the last 6 years
Leslie has traveled extensively in Europe, several years in “Bella Italia”, specifically, Desenzano, Italy. While there, she taught art at the Verona Italy American School. More recently she was honored with the Collectors Choice, “Best in Show” at the St Louis Artist Guild for 2007. She has participated in numerous shows in St Louis, amongst them the now infamous, Art Attack gallery in the Central West End, as well as showing in Macon, Georgia in an Interactive exhibit.
Leslie resides in St. Louis, where she is happy as a wife and mother and is always enthusiastic about her contribution to the “world of art”. Her hope is to inspire others to express themselves in any creative way that fits them best, and seek out the less than obvious in her paintings.
