About Leslie:

Seeking a classical art education, Hudson-Tolles attended West Virginia Wesleyan, graduated w/a B.S. in Art Education Summa Cum Laude from the University of Bridgeport and earned her MS with additional postgraduate work at Southern Connecticut State University.

Hudson-Tolles’ horses have been featured on the cover of The Chronicle of the Horse, Visions, in Equine Images, The Horseman’s Yankee Pedlar, and California Riding Magazine.  She has artwork in the collections of the Newman/Woodward family, Denis Leary, John Lyons, The Phil Marino Racing Stables and newscaster Brian Williams.

Hudson-Tolles works in colored pencil, graphite and pastels.  She uses her etched zinc plates to pull unique monoprints.  Her work has been shown in Mt. Kisco NY, Sacramento CA, Lexington KY, Atlanta GA, and numerous locations in the Northeast.

After years in Connecticut, Leslie now lives with her husband in Faith, North Carolina.  She is an art educator at Erwin Middle School, Rowan County, NC and conducts a bimonthly Saturday class from her home studio.
