Leslie Chandler is a freelance visual artist whose artwork ranges from photo-realistic to abstract contemporary and contemporary impressionism. All of it best expresses her experience outdoors in Canada’s great natural beauty.
She is deeply moved by God’s artistry, the awe felt when exploring beaches, forests, lakes, mountains of the Pacific and Atlantic coastlines, the endless prairie wheat fields, the Laurentians’ spectacular fall colours or the majestic Northern night skies, all equally matched by their magnificent flowers, plants, and animals. She sees everything as a concept illustration that points her to God.
Leslie grew up exploring the spectacular BC outdoors with her family, whether it be nature hikes to pick wild blueberries on a local mountainside, picnics and clam-digging on west coast beaches, fishing and camping throughout the BC interior or even epic sojourns accompanied by historical narratives while crossing the Canadian prairies. Leslie writes:
“A typical childhood memory is sitting on a beach with my father, John Moutray, discussing the view together. (He was an accomplished professional and freelance artist and remains the source of my artistic inspiration.) Even when I was a child, he would often talk with me as though I was one day destined to become an artist. He taught me how to really see. I used to love watching him paint in the studio of my childhood home."
That combined with my mother's eye for detail, beauty and nature’s resourceful harvests have shaped how I perceive all that surrounds me.
”Having retired from a 34-year career as a teacher in 2020, Leslie now resides with her husband in a village near Ottawa where she works from her home studio. In addition to pursuing her own creative interests, she does paintings by commission, runs art workshops and volunteers in creative community endeavours. Leslie is a member of Art East Ottawa as well as an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Her paintings are found in private collections across North America and in Europe.
