San Antonio artist Leslie Tucker Jenison is inspired by the textural beauty found in the patterns of natural and man-made environments. Leslie loves the tactile experience of working with cloth and paper. Using dye, paint, and thread, Leslie creates unique imagery on these surfaces. The juxtaposition of the macro to microscopic world is a recurring theme in her work.
I’ve always been interested in art and spent a lot of time making art as a kid – I was encouraged to explore art by my parents. So much of what I make is inspired by the things I see when I travel, and also in my backyard garden. The trick is to take the time to really observe. The sketchbook is a valuable place to document things with notes and sketches.
