Lesley Reppeteaux is a storyteller whose paintings are deeply affected by the marriage of art and literature. Drawing influences from the Art Nouveau movement, vintage postcards, and the wonder of nature, the characters in her work celebrate strong ethereal beauty and invoke a femininity whose power is all-encompassing. Through a mindful balance of vision and improvisation, Reppeteaux submerges her viewers in an exploration of themes consisting of dream-like adventures and otherworldly mysteries.
Reppeteaux received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration in 1998 from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver, CO. and has been painting professionally for the past 10 years. She is a published comic book author and illustrator and has exhibited her paintings at galleries in London, Melbourne, Berlin, and Tokyo, on both coasts of the U.S.A. and at many cities in between. She has been featured in Hi-Fructose, ISM Quarterly, Art Prostitute, and Lemonade Magazine.
She prefers her clothes splattered with acrylic paint, and her workspace filled with tipped jars of brushes and numerous children books. She travels extensively and has lived in Canada, Europe, and all over the U.S.A. Reppeteaux currently resides in Portland, OR – home of zines, strong coffee, and galoshes.
