After Lexie’s Garden, Acrylic, 10x10 - by Leslie Butterfield

Creating is my passion and provides space where I can be calm and express my ideas and feelings. With formal art training from a Danish art school program and three academic degrees in the field of Design, I have studied and produced art objects for decades. Much of my work is project-based and collaborative. I enjoy painting, making fused glass art pieces, creating collages and designing textiles. My work is in private and public collections across the United States and in Denmark.

Since 2016 I have been a member of the Public Art Committee for the City of Sarasota where we review submissions for public art and recommend acquisitions to the City Council. In 2020, I co-founded Art in Common Places to bring art and poetry to people in Sarasota in everyday places.
