Realistic Fine Art Paintings

Fine art by juried artist,
Leslie Pease

In 1987, I graduated from UMass Dartmouth (formerly known as Southeastern Massachusetts University) with a BFA in illustration.

Still Life Painting

Immediately following graduation, I taught miyself the computer graphics and as many software applications as possible. Entering the professional world I worked as a full-time employee and later, as a free-lance artist. I created everything from corporate presentations, to the localization of software and other material (into foreign languages), When my husband started his own company, I left the corporate world to become his creative partner and full-time designer.

After having two children and retiring from the work-force, in April, 2002, I decided to return to my fine art roots and put the old degree to work and began to seriously teach myself how paint. After a short time dabbling with decorative painting, I began to paint pet portraits and still life painting, compiling quite a portfolio!
