These silk appliqué images were commissioned in an effort to conserve endangered species
and threatened landscapes of the Himalayan region. Organisations such as the International
Snow Leopard Trust (ISLT), the Snow Leopard Conservancy (SLC), the Tibetan Mountain Institute
(TMI)and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF)sponsored andcollaborated with Leslie to design and
develop these imagesas educational tools to serve the local communities as well as raise funds
generated through sale of original artwork and ongoing sale of posters produced.
All originals are created as silk appliqué paintings.
