Ash Leslie is an abstract artist based on NSW Coal Coast.

Ash has enjoyed a life-long passion for art since discovering a love of painting and drawing in early childhood.

Her abstract paintings are an exploration in composition where she works to create harmony between structural and organic shapes.

 Colour is a central influence as she instinctively explores composition with bold hues, which are then later abandoned for muted tones. This results in multi-layered works with patches of colour peering through.

 Along with colour, Ash is also inspired by other creative fields namely interior design, textiles and photography and attributes her skills in composition to her background in graphic design.
