Born and raised in Mexico City, Dallas artist Leslie Archer started drawing at the age of six, sold her first painting at seven, and had her first solo exhibit at 13. After six years of private lessons, she went on to study studio art at the University of Texas at Austin and received an associate's degree in applied arts from the Art Institute of Dallas. "Art simply fills me with passion, whether I'm creating it or admiring it. I love to look at anything beautiful. I can do it for hours."
