I’m Leslie Montana, a visionary-artist, designer, and seer. When I'm creating it's an immense, awesome, infinite sense of true beauty that I'm immersed in. Flowers, plants, and nature, the patterns and colors I see all around me, and how everything moves and connects have always been a source of interest for me. The power of the invisible, what we call potential, and possibility, is what makes being a creative so magical. What does it mean to have faith in the invisible? There's a behind-the-scenes world where everything is in the process of becoming and to bring my ideas into form that's what I'm tapped into at a very deep level.
'Exquisite Paintings on The Nature of Flowers', a body of work begun in the late 1990s entered phase II in late 2018. Since its inception, the works of art in this long-term exploration have helped me to bring a sense of order to the chaos that is so very present in the world today. When visitors enter my studio and smell roses, and there's not a real flower in sight, I know the invisible is conveying its utterly alive, coherent message of higher Love. I'm reminded over and over again as I redefine what it means to me to be an artist and what a true work of art might aspire to be.
As the pace quickens these days, we are forced to slow down, pause and regain our balance. Beauty provides an essential sanctuary and can assist in the transformation we're being asked to make. Artwork can set the tone for us and make our environment a place where we can continue to thrive. Consciously created works of art function as a living prayers. Our space and how we inform it with our presence along with the things we have in it can be powerful enough to hold us in a state of grace. There's nothing more important today than connecting with the qualities that nurture and support our being in this way. This is where my focus is.
Included in my offerings are original works of art, museum-quality fine art prints, wearable garments and textile treatments for interior designers. I also consider a few painting commissions each year. Learn more about my process here and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
