Artist Bio - Leslie Poteet Busker

Leslie Poteet Busker
 
 
 
ABOUT
 
Hello and welcome! My name is Leslie Poteet Busker. I'm a Charlotte-based abstract artist and former commercial interior designer.
 
I come from a line of creatives. My father, an architect, exposed me to edgy, minimalistic design. And my mother, a journalist/editor, inspired a love for style, layout, and black and white text. I cannot remember a time as a child when I did not have my bucket of beloved "colors" (crayons) and my dog close by. My crayons were my joy and delight, and I colored for hours everywhere we went.
 
In college, I studied Interior Design, graduating from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Housing, Interior Design, and Resource Management. Post-college, I designed commercial interiors for several architecture firms in Charlotte. I retired to home school, and upon our children’s graduations I began pursuing art full-time.
 
I create both large- and small-scale works for individuals and corporations. My preferred media are acrylic and pen and ink. 
 
My work is about seeing joy and beauty in the simple and unexpected.
 
To see what I’m working on each week, you can follow me on Instagram @lesliepoteetbuskerart. Please join me as I create and explore!
