I moved from New York City, population 8 million, to Aripeka, Florida, a small fishing village with 397 people on the Gulf of Mexico. My home and studio are surrounded by more than 15,000 acres of coastal wilderness. All this beauty has inspired and influenced me as an artist. Every day I’m engaged by its raw, primitive energy.
“Leslie Neumann’s visions of natural scenery are the real thing. There’s no peace here, no safe hold. Neumann’s landscapes celebrate unpredictability and mood. If you want to see the sublime, if you want to see what Florida would be missing without its wetlands, see these pictures by Neumann.” Joan Altabe, Sarasota Herald Tribune
