Leanna Leithauser Lesley

Leanna Leithauser Lesley is a graduate of Auburn University with a B.A. in Art Education. Though she has used many mediums throughout her career, personal inspiration as an avid needlepointer and music lover has led her to her present fiber arts endeavor. She has dedicated the last sixteen years to creating stitched portraits and raising the awareness of needlepoint as an art form. She creates her own needlepoint designs with a unique ability to render the smallest detail, making faces of her subject of choice. She uses no patterns, but an image is stitched freehand into the canvas much as a painter renders using a needle as a brush and yarn as paint, making every creation one of a kind. Each piece is then personally hand sewn into a tapestry, furniture, a pillow, a purse or a framed piece.
