Haunting Portraits by Leslie Ann O’Dell
Leslie Ann O’Dell is a self-taugh artist from Colorado. She works in more than one methods, more prominent being photography and digital technology.
In a recent interview she explained why she remained a, obviously great, self-taught artist. “I am self-taught, but at one point I did I try art school. Only lasted a year, just wasn’t for me. I could never really follow rules or deadlines . . .“. From then on her ideas come from “[…] my imagination. I definitely feel influenced or pushed to create after some authors.Anne Rice when I was younger . . . . Not the characters she created, but the atmosphere.“
Her work is elegant and at the same time vibrant. She uses pale colours in general with some strong, sharp colours such as black or red. Enjoy.
