Leslie's Classes

I was born in Oakland, California and grew up in the San Francisco Bay area during the 1960's. I graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Printmaking and a minor in Photography. My background includes Graphic Arts and Textile Design.

I moved to Atlanta in 1979 and married my husband Robert with whom I raised two children. I have studied Metalsmithing at the Spruill Center for the last thirteen years and have thoroughly enjoyed all of my classes and instructors. I bring a West Coast aesthetic to my work in Silver, Gold and Gemstones. For many years, I have been assisting my Spruill instructor Susan Saul, and have recently begun to teach the Beginning Jewelry & Metalsmithing course.
