Lesley Frenz (b. 1972) is an emerging artist working in acrylics and watercolors. Born and raised in coastal North Florida, she received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of North Florida where she studied Art History and Painting. An avid hiker and backpacker, Frenz finds inspiration in wild places and her current practice is centered around the exploration of the natural world and landscape through its expression in color. Soft and atmospheric, her paintings evoke the vast mystery held in places few truly explore. Frenz and her husband travel throughout the Pacific northwest, working and searching for inspiration and a place to call home. She is currently painting in Tacoma, Washington.
