She is the author of Inspirational Quotes Illustrated (NL, Fall 2014) and has taught extensively in the US and internationally. Her art and articles have appeared in numerous publications and juried shows. In her former position as Contributing Editor of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, Lesley showcased new talent in mixed-media art.

Lesley has filmed instructional DVDs with Creative Catalyst Productions and Quilting Arts. In an ongoing effort to find the best ways for quilters and mixed-media artists to get permanent photos on fabric, Lesley introduced Transfer Artist Paper(TM)-named CHA's 2011 most innovative new product-the state of the art technology for iron-on transfers to fabric. Currently, Lesley is the host of BlogTalk Radio's Art & Soul show and has a growing specialty as an Artist Success(TM) expert and coach, providing solutions for artists of all levels.
