Passport to Art is a lecture series highlighting local artists as they share their love of art with DC Ranch residents. The regional artist brings a selection of their pieces to view and gives a delightful description of the process to make the work. They also discuss their development through artistic forms and how they became passionate about their work.
This season’s artist is Leslie Austin:
Originally from New Jersey, Leslie and her family moved to Arizona in 1996 where the desert and mountains became her inspiration. After retiring from teaching, she began the transition to artist by honing her skills in watercolor, drawing, pastels, pencils and oils. Her paintings capture her love of the desert trails, horses, cactus flowers, archways and unique structures in Arizona. Her purpose is to emphasize the movement and beauty of the light so that the observer feels the peace and warmth within her images. She is also an active member of the Scottsdale Artist League and volunteers in the Veteran’s art classes held at the Alliance.
