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!”
