Maryanneleslie's Profile Picture
Mary-Anne Leslie
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I'm from Vancouver Canada originally and now reside in Arizona. After taking Graphic Design and Illustration in college I decided I would also like to study classical animation which is now basically obsolete but did it ever hone my drawing skills! After experimenting with many mediums and techniques I fell in love with ballpoint pen when I needed a fast and inexpensive method for a job I was not making any money on. I've illustrated a couple of books for people who self published, and have sold several paintings and done murals in between for the cash. As you can probably tell, my favorite subjects to draw are anything Romantic, and I'm particularly fond of costume.


The Temptation of Snow by Maryanneleslie
The Temptation of Snow
I colored in this one too, of course. Once again, a sort of mash up of Snow White, and the concept of Eve with the apple.
Snow White encounters a witch (serpent) who insists she taste of an apple...
The Annunciation of Cinderella by Maryanneleslie
The Annunciation of Cinderella
Markers are my new love. This is such an improvement on the black & white version.
Cinderella, praying at her mother's grave, is visited by a fairy godmother (angel?), who casts a spell on her...
Greetings and long time no talk!
I moved yet again, the Gods would have me start from square one, back in the hottest of hot cities in the country. Bizarre. My life felt like a twilight zone episode for a while there. But I've recovered, and in the spirit of Mabon (google it) I'm trying to focus on all the blessings I've received, and how living here again may help me in the long run. I just want to live somewhere that has discernable seasons, and most of the time is under 70 degrees. Doesn't have to be fancy! Also, I want to spend most of my working hours drawing fairies, ok? Is that so much to ask?? Yes, actually that's quite unreasonable, you white-privileged bitch. Well I don't care! As long as I must exist in this dimension, I want it to be as ideal as possible. Heck, if I had enough money to simply rent a small tiny shack in let's say Oregon, and eat and have internet, I'd donate any remainder of my income to those in need. I'll wear rags. Ok, Gods? You hear me? I will work my ass off if that work entails drawing fantasy creatures in period costume. Average 55 degrees, crisp autumns, drawing. That's all! Thank you!
In the spirit of this dream, I'm selling many of my original paintings here 
And I now have a real website 
And I'll be at this event selling my wares!

Sweep the Circle by Maryanneleslie
Sweep the Circle
The Nöxfae told me about their friends, the Wyrdfae! A race of fairy witches. Remember not all fairies are tiny and bug-winged. And in this case they retained the long graceful ears. Maybe they will teach us their magick!
