About Leslie Redhead

Leslie Redhead is a watercolor artist and teacher, living and working in Vancouver, BC. She is a signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (AFCA). Her work is widely acclaimed and is in huge demand across the globe.

Leslie Redhead is a national and international award winning artist known for her dramatic watercolours. Her art focuses on the combination of spontaneity and detail that watercolour has to offer. She continues to explore the possibilities and pushes the medium beyond its limitations to achieve luminous and incredible results.

In 1995, Leslie graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor’s degree and is currently pursuing her Masters of Arts. Pencil sketching, figure drawing, and painting continue to be the focus of Leslie’s endeavors.

Leslie began painting with watercolour in her teenage years. She then explored acrylic and oil but her passion for watercolour never abated. In 1998, she moved to the Northeastern United States where she began intense exploration of working with both oils and watercolour. Leslie found the versatility of watercolour to be exactly what she had always wanted. Leslie's explorations have led to refined handling of any medium by her and rise in her popularity by being featured in shows across North America over the last decade.

Leslie’s paintings and knowledge of watercolour are now in demand worldwide. Her portraits are filled with light and color and have brought her much acclaim. Leslie is exploring a new series of “focused pours” of architectural subjects which involves pouring layers of paint.These pieces are fresh and exciting. Recently, her pours have been on clay board as well as paper as she recreates scenes from her travels in Andalucía. Leslie finds the clay board to be ideal for capturing the beautiful light and mood of Southern Spain.

The artist currently conducts workshops in Canada, the US, and Spain. Her work is featured in the books "Splash 10: Passionate Brush strokes from the Splash: Best of Watercolor series" and in "Leslie Redhead: the life of an artist".
