Leslie’s images are departures inspired by traditional Tibetan Art. Her participation in creating large-scale lost heritage art in Tibet(1992-1997) -after being trained in both art therapy and Tibetan thangka painting- led her into creating silk appliqués that stretch the boundaries of technique to express themes spanning from traditional, environmental, to more recently multi-levelled abstracts.
Having spent many years away from her native Europe to live and work in Tibet, Hawaii and South East Asia, Leslie’s work is infused with a blend of landscapes and symbols. Balancing line, form and color reveal a bold and vibrant yet subtle aesthetic. Leslie has been involved in numerous site-specific commissions for private collections and public spaces worldwide as well as collaborated with conservation groups to design images created both to inspire and educate.
Her most recent contemporary works -silk abstract constructions echoing traditional forms offers a 3D fluid and transparent visual reflecting interdependence and stillness in motion.
Her artwork is available to commission as well as fine art Giclée prints: Contact Leslie or visit her website at leslienguyentemple.com.
