Leslie Ovechka is an accomplished artist whose love of art and fashion date back to her childhood. She has been an oil painter since the age of ten and always enjoyed sketching the latest fashions for fun. One of her earliest successes occurred at age five. Her mother sent one of her drawings to a children's TV program. It was shown on air and she was awarded a prize of a baby doll. The image was of a glamorous woman in an elegant sheath with a full tulle flounce at the bottom - very Marilyn Monroe! Years later when a friend asked her to draw a picture of her wedding gown from photos, Leslie was pleased to merge her innate, creative talents and love of fashion in a way to make people happy.
Many are delighted with the beautifully drawn, professionally matted and framed sketches as gifts to give their beloved brides.
Leslie's oil and watercolor paintings have been featured in galleries in New Jersey, California and Massachusetts. All subjects in nature including landscapes, seascapes and still life interest her.
She is currently working with linoleum cut block printing techniques.
