Leslie Berenson - Inspiration and Background

About Me

Inspiration and Background

Scouting Locations

My inspiration comes from years of scouting locations while working as a Creative Director. I’ve directed photo shoots in some of the most beautifully inspiring and quaint places in the world. From little fishing villages all along the New England coast, to the blue waters of the Caribbean and the exotic places on the Hawaiian Islands-I have such vivid and wonderful memories.

I love to see the early morning light flickering over the water at sunrise, as well as those moments of vanishing light just before sunset. These are my favorites times to capture the stillness and beauty that happens as the sun reverberates and reflects off of the grasses, trees and water and of course, the little boats that dot these magical place.

Childhood Memories Brought to Life

I often reflect on those days as a young girl when I would go fishing in the early mornings and watch the sun rise and mystically flicker on the water. I loved those times when my dad and I would sit in the stillness and tranquility of day break.

From the time I was a young girl I always knew I was going to be an artist. As a matter of fact, I won my first art show when I was only 7 years old.

Professional Training

Immediately after graduating high school I entered the Art Institute of Boston and while there, I won many awards and commendations for my work.

After graduation I went to work in the fashion industry and during my more than 20 year career I rose to the role of Creative Director.

Today, as an accomplished and successful painter, my work has been compared to the impressionistic style of some of the “old masters” splashed with a touch of fantasy.

My work has been featured in numerous art shows and exhibits and is displayed in the homes and offices of many prominent and well respected art collectors, families and corporations.

I hope you find a feeling of peacefulness, calm and tranquility in my painting,
as that is what I seek to achieve.
