About The Artist
Hi! I'm Leslie Sealey and I love art in all its forms. I've explored many different media over the years, from photography to painting, printmaking and sculpture. After many years as a traditional oil painter, I am exploring new ways to create my art.
I'm making a world of 18th-century bird characters in both sculpture and digital collage form, and my website is dedicated to those works.
The sculptures are one-of-a-kind, hand painted pieces usually done in polymer clay. Occasionally I will mold and cast in resin sculptures that I think are exceptional (such as the Countess Cooey sculpture edition). The digital collages combine my original bird art with images of flowers, typography and other elements to enhance each character. I also do realistic paintings of birds, as that is part of studying them and learning the anatomy.
Birds are universally relatable and that is one reason I've chosen to focus on them. I also love historical fashion, and combining those interests seems like a fun road to travel. My purpose is not to follow, it is to go my own way and see what happens. I hope you enjoy my creations!
