About Lesley Spanos

Lesley Spanos in the studio.

Lesley Spanos is no stranger to agriculture and fairs. As a youth in 4-H she showed cattle and sheep,  and entered her art and vegetables in the county fair. Though an urban dweller all her adult life, she’s never gotten over her love of a good agricultural exposition.

Though Lesley is painting almost exclusively in fast-drying acrylics for this project, she’s also well-versed in oils, watercolors, and gouache. She enjoys painting colorful subjects and dramatic light.

Lesley shares a home in Indianapolis with her husband and their German Shepherd mix dog. This summer her organic vegetable garden includes seven varieties of summer squash.
