Leslie Sandbulte

Contemporary figurative  paintings which combine French Impressionism and the forms of Japanese wood block prints which convey a story and a moment in time.

Leslie Sandbulte

 

Leslie Sandbulte is a fine art painter based in Scottsdale, Arizona.   Inspired by both the French Impressionists and Japanese woodblock prints, Leslie Sandbulte’s portraits and figure studies show a unique consideration for form, color, and design.   

Leslie Sandbulte received her BA degree from the School of Art and Architecture at the University of Southern California. After earning her credentials for both secondary and elementary education, Leslie spent several years as an art instructor in public schools and private settings. In recent years she has continued to study with Ron Lucas, Del Gish, David Leffel, and Milt Kobayashi. 

Artist Statement

“My goal as a painter is to capture the moments of waiting, thinking, and daydreaming of people in the ordinary scenes and rituals of daily life.  The figure has always been the  preferred  vehicle of expression.  It seems to be a  good way to create a tension between the way things actually are and how my imagination wants them to be.  I love to move between two and three dimensions flat and seemingly with depth, to play with mysterious tones verses color, good design verses reality. I love to let paint be thick, buttery and honest.  The relationship of figures I try to leave unresolved so that the viewer is left with something to think about, and in a way, become a participant.”
