Abstract Mixed-Media Artwork by Leslie Bailey

Leslie Bailey is a retired Elementary Art teacher who now devotes most of her time to creating art. She is a twice National Board Certified Early and Middle Childhood Art Specialist, was recognized as Teacher of the Year at multiple schools during her tenure, and was a finalist for Wake County Teacher of the Year in 2011. She took great pride in her ability to provide children with creative opportunities which were similar to her early experiences in art.

After more than thirty years of teaching, she now concentrates her efforts on producing abstract mixed media artworks.

The act of creating with non-traditional materials leads to an intuitive exploration of said materials while focusing on shapes, lines, colors, and textures. Considering the multiple layers of her creations, Leslie’s material choices in each level often bring about surprises in the finished products. She feels that the discovery and exploration of these “happy accidents” is what drives her to continue creating.

Leslie’s artwork has been previously displayed at The Arts Center of Carrboro, NC. She has also had exhibits at The Contemporary South Show at the Visual Arts Exchange, Imurj Gallery, and Litmus Gallery, all within Raleigh, NC. Leslie is currently a resident artist at Litmus Gallery.
