As a child I spent hours looking through my family collection of Art books. My first loves were Vincent Van Gogh, Rene Magritte, and Georgia O'Keeffe. My Dad once caught me drawing on a napkin. He reprimanded me; "If you are going to draw, you should do it on good paper". Then he took me to the art supply store.
As an artist, it's my job to capture the world I see either through the camera lens, via painting or sculpture. At the end of the day, I feel satisfied when my audience feels connected to the work I have created. It is my goal to make art that is both personally meaningful and universally accessible.
I'm very lucky to be doing what I love as my profession. From taking photographs for a variety of clients, and curating art shows, to attending workshops to continue developing my craft. This job allows me to travel and meet interesting new people all the time. I hope we are able to work together soon!
"The exhibition is a humble one at first glance, lining just a single hallway. But like a field of sugar beets or mustard greens, a closer look reveals hidden complexity. Some works, like Leslie Jay Bosch's bright acrylic-and-paper collages of gem-like hot air balloons floating across farm fields, celebrate Idaho's agricultural aesthetic." - Lex Nelson, August 8, 2018
"After the eclipse, Bosch made three digital photographic collages about "moments of time coalescing; the past, present and future all existing at once within the void of totality"..."I love that this show is called ‘Together in the Dark’ because that’s exactly how I felt,” Bosch said. “I was surrounded by my family, and I felt like we were each having our own separate experience”
