Leslie Marsh, Book Artist
Book artist Leslie Marsh is driven by her love of nature and a fascination for cultural and family history. Using metal, stones and vintage findings, she forges relic-like book covers that call to mind medieval treasure bindings created during the Middle Ages. Leslie also spends a lot of time experimenting with the marks left by leaves on paper by steeping the two together. The resulting ecoprints form signature wrappers used in most of her work. Her books are held in private collections across the US, Europe and Australia. From her studio in West Chester, Pennsylvania, she solders and binds together books of various sizes. These books become the archives for thoughts, memories and photographs. Her passion for books includes an extensive personal collection of current and antique titles.
Terri Morse, Painter
“I use color to interpret my surroundings in a language of shapes and shadows to evoke a mood, often cheerful”. Terri Morse is an artist whose optimism is seen in her colors and subjects. Drawn towards light filled spaces, the fluid transparency of watercolor and fluid acrylics enables her to capture the joy found at home, in the wilderness or while seeing new places. Organic shapes and endless color variations inspire her to share the beauty she sees. Saturated washes play off delicate layers of transparent color to bring form and depth while texture sparkles in her rice paper paintings. Hiking, sailing, gardening and travels offer a wealth of inspiration. Terri participates in regional art shows and is a signature member of the Pennsylvania Water Color Society and the Baltimore Watercolor Society. She was also the 2016 featured artist for Healing Artworks’ project at Nemours Children’s Hospital.
