Leslie Frontz Title: Award:
Canson, Inc. Award, 29th SW Annual


296 Peace Haven DriveLexington, NC 27292
(336) 357-5974

LESLIE FRONTZ earned the M.F.A. in studio arts, is recognized in Who's Who in America and Who's Who in American Art, and has had work featured in The Artist's Magazine and U.S. Art. Her paintings have been exhibited in notable public, corporate and private galleries, including the Smithsonian. She is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, Southern Watercolor Society (U.S.A.) and the Society of Women Artists (London).

Leslie Frontz studied watercolor with Bernard Evans in England, the birthplace of watercolor painting as a fine art medium. To this day, the artist's admiration for the traditional English school of watercolor is clearly evident in her work. Her painting technique is clean and direct, using a minimum amount of brushwork to indicate her subjects with great simplicity. The effect leaves much to our imagination while convincing us of the authenticity of her observations. Balancing luminous grays against pure color accents, she captures not only the literal scene, but also instills it with light and atmosphere.

One notices immediately that landscapes dominate her catalog. A closer inspection, however, reveals her preference for subjects that incorporate a human element, particularly figures, architecture and maritime themes. It should not be surprising that subjects from both Britain and America hold a prominent place in her work, as she maintains family and business ties on both sides of the Atlantic. To even the most informed eye, her appeal covers an astonishingly broad range.
