With a theosophist approach to creating Leslie Ebert connects with the muse, allowing an intuitive discovery of imagery that exists in the micro world around us. This visual information provides a glimpse into the movement of energy flow, the make up of the universal field, and possibly the afterlife itself.
Self taught as an artist, Ebert has a degree in Architecture from the University of Oregon in Eugene. Over the last twenty Ebert's Mixed Media work has evolved from etching drawings into metal plates to transferring photographic images on to them. This body of work combines current image capture technology of macro digital photography with sublimation image transfer techniques; using translucent pigments that when heated turn into a gas that transfers into the metal surface, creating a soft painterly effect. White space becomes the silver of the aluminum support while the transparent pigments have an iridescence luster that creates a 3-D look to the finished artworks.
Leslie Ebert's artwork can be found in numerous private and corporate collections around the Pacific Northwest including Austin Industries, art of the Allison Collection, of Oregon artist's; as well as several private collections internationally (in India, China, Vietnam, England, France and Canada). Ebert has shown recently at the ‘National Association of Women Artists Gallery in New York and in 'Collision' at the Center on Contemporary art in Seattle Washington. Leslie Ebert has been listed in Whos Who of American Artists and her work has been on the cover of magazines most recently Art Access, Seattle, Jan/March 2014, as well as published in several books and journals including Diffusion; Unconventional Photography Annual Vol. IV, and 'Visual Journeys; Art of the 21st Century.'
