Art Work by ​Lesha

Paintings lush with color, beauty and light

Lesha's first public exhibit of her artwork was at the Albright Knox Art Museum in Buffalo, NY in the student wing when she was a senior in high school.  Since then she has shown works in group and solo shows in Sarasota, Savannah, Atlanta, Oakland, San Francisco, Murphy's California and in Paia, Kahului, Makawao, Wailuku and Lahaina, Maui.  She currently lives in Asheville, NC and loves it. She has taught art for over 13 years to all ages from preschoolers to 100 year olds at various venues from people's homes to universities and plein air on the beaches of Maui.  

Lesha is currently offering acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine at her clinic and art gallery in Hendersonville, NC. She specializes in digestive health and offers dietary therapy, cooking classes and weight management. Lesha wishes to share with her community her holistic approach to health care and her love of art and beauty. She is proud to be a part of the revitalization of the historic 7th Avenue district. Come in, have a cup of tea, view art and say hi. Free acupuncture consultation upon appointment.



Lesha has been fascinated by drawing and painting since her first Crayola caddy of art supplies when she was 4 years old.  Filled with an insatiable curiosity of how things work in this world, Lesha delves into everyday objects and scrutinizes every detail of color in light and shadow to reveal a microcosmic world that is present in every small moment.  Lesha likens her works to the zen poetry of haiku and revels in the spiritual essence of beauty that is present in even the seemingly mundane, such as a piece of fruit or a shadow falling on a wall. Beauty is everywhere and Lesha chooses carefully to shift the viewer's perceptions by taking the ordinary and presenting it in an extraordinary way.
