With classical training in Fine Art & ten years of Professional Photography experience,
Leslie Jay Bosch brings her unique background to play in all of her work. A graduate from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, Leslie Jay’s focus in art school was on painting, sculpture, and environmental design. Her interest in photography came as a way to document her ephemeral art installations.
Her photography career officially began in 2001 with the summer after graduation spent working as a newborn portrait photographer. What followed was 5 years as in-house photographer for Jay Griffith Landscapes. It was during this time that she refined her eye for composition, lighting and anticipating the correct timing for capturing the best shots. In 2007 she launched her own business, Leslie Jay Bosch Photography, with a focus on Real Estate Photography in Los Angeles, CA. This is where she found her commercial photography niche. Using a wide angle lens, she tells the story of each home.
I create artworks that express my own experiences of universal themes: love, loss, beauty, destruction & creation. I find inspiration in natural patterns and the human form. Over the years, I have experimented with many media & materials, such as paint, clay, photography, digital collage, plastic spoons, fabric, electrical components, wax, upholstery foam, zip ties, industrial knitting needles, etc. These are all materials that evoke the human experience. I see no limits on what can become art materials. However, I have become most drawn to photography & clay. Photography satisfies a need for immediacy in capturing a moment. When my hands are in clay, I feel closest to my creative source. My intention and ultimate purpose is to create art that is at once personally unique and universally accessible.
