A Room with a View...

This hand painted arched window is the perfect touch for this powder room in Sleepy Hollow, IL. 

 The photo below shows what it looks like as you approach from the hallway. 

In the photo on the right, you can see the details more clearly...like the cracks in the stone. The flowers on the window sill bring just the right touch of color to the room.

Pirates of the Caribbean

This pirate's skull, along with the swords and a personalized banner underneath, covers this 8' high bedroom wall!

About the Artist

That's me, Leslie. I've been painting on people's walls for about 20 years now, and feel so blessed to be able to do what I love! I also teach art to home school children through 2 different organizations, as well as private lessons. I teach kids ranging in age from 4 years old to high school level. On a personal level, I'm a wife, a mom, and a Christian who seeks to please God (the Ultimate Artist!) in all that I do. I strive to exceed my client's expectations.
