Image-In Design, Kingston Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement Kristin Leslie was born at the base of the Rocky Mountains, but grew up in the cosmopolitan environment of Canada’s largest city, Toronto. Known for her creativity and entrepreneurial spirit, she was nicknamed Kucci by family and friends.
She began travelling at a very young age and wanting to share her experiences with others, she turned to photography. Of late, Kristin has come to appreciate the day-to-day things that are so easily taken for granted. Over the last year, she has turned her focus towards sharing the true beauty of those blooms found in local gardens often capturing images not visible to the naked-eye. Concentrating on organic floral-macro photography, Kristin has worked to keep her floral work as true to nature as possible, working with natural light and avoiding the digital darkroom.
Kristin’s goal is to use her floral images to show others that there is always more than meets the eye. It is her sincere hope that her images will serve to beautify homes and spark a new appreciation for the obvious.
