Leslie Dalton offers her thoughts about daily life: "Within each day of our lives there can be multiple demands of our time and, at the end of the day, most of us want a place where we can relax and have a sense of calmness, if only for a brief period of time." ~Leslie Dalton
Leslie Dalton has been an artist most of her life. She enjoys all aspects of art and loves to experiment and try new ideas, creating new and interesting pieces. She also likes relaxed art sessions with both children and adults.
One constant of hers is finding ways to preserve and evoke calmness in people and she accomplishes this through her paintings.
The inspiration for all her work is derived from research, imagination, and a great deal of experimentation.
Leslie Dalton is a mixed media artist and currently uses acrylic paint, gel mediums, a variety of textures and finishes.
There appears to be an element of water in many of her paintings. Some water symbolism meanings: Growth, healing, cleansing, and peace.
Leslie Dalton's artwork comes from her own inner peace and her hope is for everyone to feel the mood of her art piece and then be enveloped in its tranquility.
During the past three years (2015 - 2018), she has entered exhibits, accepted into shows, and has sold paintings through local galleries, including Graton Gallery, Chroma Gallery (Santa Rosa Art Center), Occidental Center for the Arts, and Sebastopol Center for the Arts. Some of her work has also been sold outside of galleries.
