"Nature is and always will be my greatest inspiration. I create soft, atmospheric abstracted paintings in acrylic and watercolor based on my experience and memories of the natural world around me."
Lesley Frenz (born April 15, 1972 in Jacksonville, Florida) is an emerging artist working in acrylics and watercolors. Born and raised in coastal North Florida, she received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of North Florida where she studied Art History and Painting. An avid hiker and backpacker, Frenz finds inspiration in wild places and her studio practice is centered around the exploration of the natural world and landscape through its expression in color. Soft and atmospheric, her paintings evoke the vast mystery held in places few truly explore. Frenz and her husband have found home on Camano Island, a small island just north of Seattle in Washington, where she paints while looking out onto the seas of the Puget Sound.
