Lesley Sickle is a Kent State University alumnus with a Masters of Fine Art. Her current work explores layering, abstraction and color. She uses drawings of shadows from her surroundings to create small, intimate compositions that are then cut, bent and folded to create a new set of shadows. Sickle's work has been exhibited at the International Print Center in New York City, the Prince Street Gallery in New York City and a number of times at Zygote Press in Cleveland, OH. She is the Downtown Gallery Coordinator at Kent State University and resides in Kent, OH.
