Artist Bio - Leslie Poteet Busker

Leslie Poteet Busker
Hello and welcome! My name is Leslie Poteet Busker. I'm a Charlotte-based abstract artist and former commercial interior designer.
My art is about finding joy and beauty in the simple and unexpected. I create it to be a delightful respite from the chaos of daily life and to help people refocus on things that are in some way noble, admirable, and beautiful. Gathering glimmers of inspiration from all aspects of the design world, I condense, combine, and translate those concepts onto canvas and paper. I am inspired daily by the work of artists and designers from all disciplines - from classical art and architecture, to high fashion, textile design, formal gardens, music, and dance.
I studied interior design in college, graduating from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Housing, Interior Design, and Resource Management. Post-college, I designed commercial interiors for various architecture firms in Charlotte. I retired to home school our kids, and upon our their graduations I began pursuing art full-time.
I love art for the freedom to joyfully play with color and texture and movement. A perfectionist in most areas of my life, with art, I am completely free to create and explore. I do both large- and small-scale pieces and my preferred media are acrylic and pen + ink. 
To see what I’m working on each week, you can follow me on Instagram @lesliepoteetbuskerart. I would love for you to join me as I create and explore!
