Elsha Leventis - Artist, Eyescapes, Watercolors, Oil

Welcome to my website—I hope that my work engages you a while.

Since its beginnings as my thesis at the Ontario College of Art and Design more than ten years ago, my work has continued to evolve. Many people have told me that my paintings are sophisticated and at least one "expert" has commented that my art is complex in its simplicity —I know only that I love the process of working in oil on Mylar. It is utterly satisfying to me—soul food. Over time I have learned to orchestrate more purposefully the processes and techniques—but the outcome is always a surprise as the materials continue to change until dry. I have had the happy fortune to be exhibited locally in Toronto, and more recently, further abroad, with representation in Ottawa, Montreal, and the United States. It is also humbling and a great honour each time someone purchases a piece—thank you.
