Leslie Poteet Busker is a contemporary abstract and figurative artist. Leslie's artistic style combines thoughtful emotions with raw-edged texture, linework, layers, and a restrained use of color to create pieces that are versatile in both modern and traditional settings. Her abstract work reveals moments of free-flowing expression, while her figure studies emphasize graceful contours and neoclassical influences.

Post university, she received her professional NCIDQ certification and joined Clark Tribble Harris and Li Architects, PA in Charlotte, NC, concentrating on interior projects for national corporate headquarters, banks, and law firms.
