Leslie is a sculptor, and the creator of the Beastlies: an ongoing line of small but expressive monsters collected by fans around the world. When not making Beastlies, she explores natural history and world-building through her sculpture. Her work has been exhibited in galleries around the country, and as far away as Tokyo. Her Beastlies and other creations have appeared in several publications, including the cover of the farewell issue of Nintendo Power.
Leslie also founded and helps run the Wayward Retreat, a creative retreat for women pursuing their artistic calling. The retreat takes place annually on a small island in Canada, and more information (including how to apply) can be found here.
She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and one too many cats.
