About Me

Hi World!

I'M Leslie,

An Artist from Texas; Influenced early by my Mother who painted on glass while I was a young girl. I studied art home-school and practiced Art throughout my whole life. At 19 I moved to Germany, traveled through Europe visiting places such as Paris, France. In Paris I visited the historic Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and Notre Dame de Paris. In Germany I visited several castles, my favorite located in Schwangau, Germany, Neuschwanstein Castle, which I learned was Walt Disney's inspiration. It was in Europe where I was exposed to impressive traditional mosaic works. Inspired by mosaic glass works and the history; I gained a profound respect for them. 

In 2000, the idea was ignited, early beginnings of what would become BellaMOSA.Art. Fascinated with mosaic art,  decorative tile; and the combination of my earlier inspiration of painting on glass is “Bella” A Beautiful combination of media, featured material being glass, and traditional mosaic historical concepts and style, the ROOT of the Word Mosaique (French) is Moses. The collective process of gathering significant smaller pieces or tesserae to become a much larger picture, concept and art work bacame the famine BellaMOSA.Art.


In 2004, Bella Mosaique Creations Kansas City, Missouri opened. It was a Gallery, Art/Ballroom Dance Studio, That was fun! Then on to Working for the Kansas City Art Institute, Kansas City, Missouri as a Figure Drawing Model for 10 years. 

Relocating back to El, Paso Texas in 2019 From Kansas City, Missouri after 22 Years; I feel My “BIO” is Just beginning…lol  I have come to realize having a meek and open mind is a good discipline to practice, walking with wisdom, and willing to learn something new every day… It was told to me: to be a good leader, is to first master following… For me, it is not what I have created but what is yet to be created, GOD WILLING…   

Thank You for Reading -Cheers!

Inspiration

In the ROOT of All Living Things, How Beautiful things Alive and “dead” resonates LIFE… I am Interested in how people respond to the Social Constructs Of Our Day… In these modern times, when we are taught “how to respond” to “things;” like the Internet of things as opposed to or equal to how we individually “want to respond” and the refining difference of that TRUTH which makes us all equally unique… 

Techniques

Oil-Painted Glass Mosaics; A combination of glass painting and strategic glass-cutting, adhered to traditional mosaic glass techniques… It all starts with the inspiration and then my favorite process is the actual painting on the glass… I don’t consider myself a great painter but I love doing it; to me it’s like preparing for a vacation; and the journey it’s gonna take me on… Cutting the glass is like “The Take-off” and when the adventure begins… Working diligently and in complete focus cutting the glass, experiencing the cuts take on their own mood in gesture… Each cut, altogether expressing an abstract energy flow.
