Leslie Frontz

Leslie Frontz is a multi-faceted artist, but it is likely that she will be best remembered for her watercolors. Although she received her first professional paint-box at the age of thirteen, it was her later introduction to watercolors that prompted her to become a professional artist. Leslie earned the M.F.A. degree in studio arts from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, formerly the Women's College of North Carolina, where she was the first graduating recipient of the Holderness Fellowship. The artist has been recognized in "Who's Who in America" and "Who's Who in American Art," featured in "The Artist's Magazine" and "U.S. Art," and has exhibited work at numerous museums and galleries, including the Smithsonian and the Mall Galleries in London. She is an elected member of the prestigious Society of Women Artists in London, a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the Southern Watercolor Society and is a founding member of Plein Air Carolina. Leslie has 30 years experience as a professional artist and teacher. She lives and paints in Lexington, North Carolina.
