Leslie Wood, Where Does Your Story Begin?, 2022, mixed media

In this two-day workshop, explore how to transform an old book into a legacy art journal. Students will use a combination of written and visual imagery to capture thoughts, memories and images of our family ancestors for our own legacy stories.

Wood is a mixed media artist from Lacey’s Spring, Alabama. She has a bachelor’s degree in Engineering, but after working for a few years, decided to go back to college and take art classes. She enrolled with the University of Alabama in Huntsville and studied photography, sculpture, and painting. Over the years she expanded her creative skills with numerous master-led classes. Her work varies from mixed media and art journaling to sculpture and jewelry making. Her recent solo exhibitions include Dreams and Reality: The Artwork of Leslie Wood at Carnegie Visual Arts Center and Evelyn Burrows Museum, and The Red Clay Survey: 2020 Exhibition of Contemporary Southern Art at the Huntsville Museum of Art.

An avid art journaler, her journal work has been published numerous times in Somerset Studio’s ART Journaling magazine including features in the Summer and Fall 2021 issues. You can find her work at local shows such as Monte Sano Art Festival and Panoply Arts Festival. For more information, visit lesliewoodarts.com.
