Born and raised in New York, Leslie Marcus maintains her cutting edge: continually taking her artwork to greater heights with passion and sensitivity.
After receiving a B.F.A from The Academy of Art College in S.F. CA., Marcus immersed herself in the Fashion World of Los Angeles, creating exclusive, original & exotic Textile Designs for Apparel & Home Furnishings.
Leslieís Textile Designs now can be found in her Contemporary Fine Art Paintings of sensuous and exotic female figures. The women Marcus paints are draped in finely embellished decorative clothing, posed in lavishly ornate settings.
Marcus, is also an Art Educator, and has taught High School and Elementary School Visual Arts. She continues to offer Private & Group Classes in Watercolor and Oil Painting.
Leslie has achieved numerous awards & recognition. Her art has been reproduced for wine labels, limited edition giclees, and fine art greeting cards.
In January 2012, Leslieís artwork was installed as part of the permanent collection in the New Healing Arts Program at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California. In addition, Leslieís work will be featured in a Solo Exhibition at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospitalís New Birthing Center and Maternity Wing through January 2013.
