Leslie Snipes was born in 1974, and raised in Lancaster SC. She earned her Bachelors of Fine Art from Appalachian State University in Boone NC, and went on to earn her Masters of Fine Art in Drawing and Painting from the University of Georgia in Athens in 2000.
Snipes' artwork has been exhibited in the Northeast and Southeast, and can be found in the collections of the High Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, and the Davison Art Center at Wesleyan University, among others.
Her artwork is minimalist in philosophy and style, concerned with paring down to the essentials and using an economy of means. The process of making the work is crucial to the point of the work, and is often repetitive in order to induce a meditative state of mind.
Artwork is for sale through Leslie, and BMA Designs.
