Artist Statement: I express a sense of happiness through my vibrant watercolor paintings. My personal style evolves through my travels and influences in life. When traveling abroad or locally I like to use the local flavors to enhance my artwork.

Adams took up watercolor painting in 2002 as a relaxing outlet in life. Her passion began as with a stroke of the brush. Leslee’s watercolors are very vibrant and alive with color. Her subject matters include our local cactus, still life, landscapes, florals and food. Given her experience with food and her passion for bold watercolors, she is known as “The Watercolor Chef”.
