Featured Artist: Leslie DeAthe

Today’s featured artist is Leslie DeAthe!


Born in Montreal and an east coaster for much of her life, Leslie is a Saltspringer at heart, having moved here for more peaceful surroundings, less concrete, and a closer community. Dabbling in many creative forms for much of her earlier artistic experience, Leslie found beadwork to be love at first sight.


Leslie on discovering her medium: “These lovely beads provided the chance to play with colour, design, and texture all at once. Now it’s nothing but needle and thread and little tiny beads!”

Leslie often works with organic forms, and is constantly experimenting to find new techniques, patterns, and effects.

This is part of a series of featured artists exhibiting at Artcraft this summer. To learn more about this artist, visit their website at http://www.lesliedeathe.com/ You can contact this artist through the Arts Council here.
