I'm still in awe of Twosie's portrait. He arrived home on Saturday and I was so happy. Leslie captured him perfectly. She worked from several photos and created a loving tribute to my Golden. This is something I will treasure forever. Thank you again Leslie--you have a very special talent! Jane


Leslie Thornton Fine Arts enriches your life

The natural world has always inspired me, whether I am hiking along a trail or walking around my neighborhood. Taking the time to observe and appreciate color, pattern, texture, light and shadow, while feeling warmth from the sun, cooling breeze blowing through trees and grass and garden adds grace to my life, grace I share with you.
Recently moving to New Mexico from California, I belong to the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico, and the New Mexico Art League. My work has appeared in many juried exhibits, winning awards for Photography and Plein Air Painting. I also explore Pet Portraits.
My style is a loose, impressionistic one, seeking to express the thoughts and feelings a camera does not always capture.
Do you have a custom request? I will work with you to bring it to life.

    My interest in the fine arts began in my father's basement darkroom. What magic when the images appeared! Formal education was at the University of Kansas, where I studied classical drawing & painting, fiber arts, art history.
