Leslie Reid Brasher

I am an Alabama artist, originally from Huntsville but now residing in the Auburn area, who grew up with an appreciation of art – especially watercolor – because my family included several professional artists. I was surrounded by wonderful artwork in various media and was fascinated by the processes used to create those works.

I received a degree in graphic design at Auburn University, and I find great enjoyment in painting with watercolors. Currently I focus on local plants, animals, and landscapes, although I love to travel and paint. My style is mostly realistic but I occasionally dabble with a looser technique.

Recently I’ve been using more ink lines in my watercolors, and I believe they help give my work more definition. I enjoy painting nature from life and love to have fresh flowers as inspiration, or to sit in a shady spot and paint the view before me. My greatest desire is to glorify God with my artwork, and I pray that by painting the beauty of His creation I am pointing viewers toward the Creator, and ultimately toward salvation through Christ.
