Leslie Hoops-Wallace enjoys painting animals, and airplanes, and the occasional political illustration. Leslie is a Graduate of the Academy of Art University of San Francisco, with a BFA in Illustration. She teaches art on Robins AFB teaching drawing and Acrylic Painting at the Arts and Crafts center there on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. She loves to paint pet portraits, and planes. She is active in the Fine Art Society of Middle Georgia. Her goal is to get the Middle Georgia area to Buy Local Art! She is a wife and mother of two artistic boys. That keeps her busy, but in her spare time she tries to paint. Leslie is inspired by nature, and loves to walk through the woods looking at lighting and textures. Leslie works hard getting the word out about art events in her area, and trying to get artists to show their work. She thinks all artists need to work together to get art to the people. The People need to be inspired by art in her opinion. Leslie did two paintings in the Macon Sketchbook, and has illustrations in several books including “Bullmina the Courageous Bulldog” and 'Bullmina to the Rescue' by Lita Eitner-England. Two of her paintings, 'American Chaos' and 'Iraqi Freedom', both were given to President George W Bush while in office, and hopes to see them in person again at the Library. A print of American Chaos hangs at his fathers Library. Ms. Hoops-Wallace is open to any commissions.
