Hello I'm Leslie, I’ve been hosting with Paint Nite for 5 years! I have painted all over the East Coast instructing Paint Nite events, but Tampa is my FAVORITE spot!! I have been a Local Partner for 2 years, planning and managing events all over the Tampa Bay! I love connecting to people though art, I believe art is therapy. Prior to Paint Nite I studied Painting at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. It has always been important for me to keep art in the community! Hope to see you at a event! leslie.shields@localyaymaker.com

She talked way too much and often repeated instructions more than neccessary. It made it hard to concentrate and just relax and enjoy it, especially b/c I was also doing this virtually with 2 other people, so I didn't get Alot of time to just check in with
