For today’s episode, the last conversation of 2021 for the podcast, I’m talking with Leslie Schoen. Leslie lives in central Wisconsin with her husband and two daughters. Her educational training is in Marriage and Family Therapy and she began a photography business in 2013. Outside of client work, she is interested in the combination of painting & photography. She explores techniques like digital painterly effects and layering her own paintings into composite images. Leslie is also interested in the healing and self growth potential in creating art.
In this conversation, Leslie shares how she got into creating composites, some ways she developed her photographic voice, and how she learned to face the fears of creating and taking risks.
