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.
I come from a line of creatives. My father, an architect, exposed me to edgy, minimalistic design that always pushed the limits of imagination. And my mother, a journalist/editor, inspired a love for design, 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.
I invite you to join me as I create and explore!
