Lesley Reppeteaux is down with the darker side of whimsy. Pouty-lipped creatures with melancholy beauty permeate her work to create a peculiar world filled with chimera and charm. She makes her living blending the worlds of literature and fantasy to create a peculiar place she can call her own.
Born in Nova Scotia, she currently resides in Venice Beach (though rarely sees the ocean due to the fact she’s cramped up painting in her studio all day).
With “Lovely Abominations” Lesley relishes in showcasing a bewitching gathering of all the cloven-hoofed vixens that prance in her head.
For our back gallery Lesley has brought together a selection of artists whom also share a fondness for alluring characters with stories and secrets to tell: Robbie Bolick, Joe Vaux, Susie Ghahremani, Logan Hicks, Mel Kadel, Daryll Peirce, Travis Millard, Tina Anderson, Jim Darling, Poor Al, Shaunna Peterson, L. Croskey, Travis Chatham, Joshua Krause, Peat Shaulis, Jeana Sohn, Calef Brown, Michele Waterman, Brooks Salzwedel, Bella Pilar, Jaime Zollars, Keith Noordzy, and Jacob Magraw
