Leslie Macon's Profile

About

I am an oil painter living and working in North Carolina. I have painted professionally since 1994. My art career began as a wood carver in 1984 when I started carving duck decoys from basswood and tupelo. I eventually apprenticed under a world class Cajun decoy carver and that was where I first discovered painting with oils. I switched from carving to painting in pastel and oil mediums in the early 1990's. It was during this time that I competed in national and international competitions as a wildlife artist winning awards and selling through art galleries. In 2001 I decided to experiment with other subjects and explored floral and still life. During that time I worked for a fine art publisher and had several collections published for the home decor market. At this point in my art career my focus is to paint what I love and I am inspired by. I sell original art and fine art giclees here in my Etsy store . Thank you for visiting!
