Lezlie is both a painter and a sculptor. Titled “Rivers, Wind, and Water,” this exhibit features her most recent paintings, inspired by the water views and breezes of the Pacific Northwest.

“I am an inventor at heart. Problem solving ignites my imagination., Lezlie said. “My process always includes a bit of adventure and a final discovery. I like my art to inform and surprise me.Burien Arts Association features painter Lezlie Jane at Highline Heritage Museum 1
