Leslie Poteet Busker is an abstract and figure artist in Charlotte, NC. She holds a degree in Interior Design from Virginia Tech and designed commercial interiors for architecture firms in Charlotte for ten years. Leslie retired from Interior Design to raise her children, and she began pursuing her life-long dream of studio art upon their graduations. She creates both large- and small-scale pieces, typically working with a limited palette of blacks, whites, and golds. Her work is currently on view at Buckhead Art & Company in Atlanta and can be found in both public and private collections across the southeast. 

Artist Statement

My art is about discovering joy and beauty in the simple and unexpected. I am inspired by the work of artists and designers from all disciplines. My own background as a designer sparked this desire not only to express color, texture, and movement through new mediums - canvas and paper, but also to capture moments of free-flowing experimentation.
