Leslie Sorg Ramsay
Leslie Sorg Ramsay was born into an artistic family on Long Island, New York. Relatives have included musicians, singers, actors, writers, a composer, professional chef, and artist painter.
Although steered into non-arts work to better support herself, Leslie naturally evolved into creative roles such as communications and marketing. To satisfy her strong visual aptitude for color and three-dimensional structures, she often designed promotional and marketing materials, as well as created custom clothes and home furnishings.
When Leslie started exhibiting her oil paintings in 2006, it was a natural evolution. Since 2006, four (4) of her paintings have been recognized for Awards of Excellence by curators/judges from national/Washington DC arts institutions. Her vision continues to evolve. She has gained tremendous guidance from Washington, DC, professional artist and teacher Gladys Kazigian, an accomplished portrait artist.
Involvement in the arts community also has included:
- Board of Governors, Arts Club of Washington, 2005-2009
- President, American Art League, 2007-2009
- Member, Spilsbury Gallery (a cooperative gallery of the Arts Club of Washington), since 2008
