Leslie Love Stone is a conceptual painter whose work often focuses on the models we build to make sense of the world and ourselves. The beauty of order is exemplified through the geometric abstraction of statistical information; complicated content is eloquently transparent with her use of negative space, repeating patterns, and color.

Leslie’s work has been included in a number of group shows and she was the solo artist in the Mosaic Gallery exhibition of They Fill My Eyes, a Tribute to the Children of Newtown.

A former banking executive and native South Carolinian, Leslie is a graduate of Claremont Graduate University’s prestigious MFA program and recipient of the Karl and Beverly Benjamin Fellowship in Art. She received her MBA from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, with concentrations in marketing and international business, and her bachelor of science degree in finance and economics from the University of Nevada, Reno. She also holds an associate of arts degree in studio art and graphic design from Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo, California. Leslie is a member of Mensa.
