Ash Leslie is an abstract artist based on the coast South of Sydney. An intuitive self taught painter, her work can be characterised by a multi-layered paint style where she works to explore spontaneity and balance within her composition. The hoped for affect are works which grant their viewer a sense of interest and intrigue. Ash’s work is driven by a fundamental personal need to create, and she is inspired by the natural world, and heartfelt everyday moments which happen in her life.


"Ash Leslie’s paintings are a celebration of nature’s beauty and the human connection to it. Her intricate brushwork and soft color palette bring to life the serene landscapes and mystical creatures that inhabit her canvases. Her work invites viewers to immerse themselves in the tranquil harmony of the natural world." - Gallery Jones
