Anatomy Dances
Collages of watercolor and photos by Lesley A. Powell

Lesley A. Powell has been as artist all of her life.  She was first a dancer, choreographer and now a painter.  The love of movement, space, texture, the body, color and nature are major influences on her art. Lesley’s art deals with the ability to expressively change the space whether it be the stage or the painting.

As her mother tells it, Lesley Powell decided not to talk until she was three years old. She did however have an inexhaustible curiosity about the visual world around her. It was indicative of the years to come her fascination with the visual and her desire to communicate by nonverbal means permeates her work to this day.

Anatomy Dances series was created for an upcoming educational video about anatomy and teaching Pilates. Lesley wanted to show the reflection of anatomy on moving bodies.
