Leslie Tucker Jenison is a mixed-media artist who loves cloth and paper. She is a full-time studio artist living in San Antonio TX. Her work has been shown internationally and is held in corporate and private collections. Surface design using dye and paint are integral components of her work. She enjoys experimenting with unconventional materials, so found and used objects are frequently integrated into her constructions. Her camera is always in-hand and the images frequently find their way into her work, literally or by way of inspiration. Leslie serves on the Board of the Alliance For American Quilts, and is a professional member of SAQA, among others. She has written for, and been featured in, numerous publications, including Quilting Arts Magazine and e-newsletter, and Quilt Festival/Quilt Scene. She has been a guest artist on Season 7 and 9 of Quilting Arts TV. Her workshop dvd, "DIY Surface Design" is available from Interweave. She enjoys teaching various quilting and mixed-media classes. In addition she enjoys reading, gardening, cooking, traveling, and is a multi-engine, instrument-rated pilot. Leslie is married and has 3 daughters, all artists. Life is good!
