Artist Leslie McCrea is based in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on the high plains at the foot of the Rocky Mountains.  She creates works that reflect her life under those big skies, in the open plains, in suburban neighborhoods, in old city streets, and with those who dwell in those spaces beside her. 

As a lifelong student, she enjoys the challenge of learning new media, while maintaining her focus in watercolor, acrylic, and ink.

As an experienced teacher, she shares her joy of art making with students in her classes and workshops. 

And as seasoned traveler, she loves to meander out-of-the-way paths, always with her sketchbook in hand.
