The Poetic Artiste
LesleyAnn Moore a.k.a The Poetic Artiste began teaching herself how to write poetry and paint in 2014 and 2016, respectively. She is a Boston Native of Jamaican and Trinidadian decent. She first started her art journey as a child sketching and using watercolors. She now masters in Acrylic Paint.
In Fall of 2020 she established and became Sole Member of her LLC, Poetic Artiste. With the help of many friends along the way, she has developed a brand. Did I mention she is teaching herself how to play the piano and how to read music?! Stay tuned for Paint Nights, Open Mics, and musically inclined Art Shows in 2021!
She currently works Per-Diem in Clinical Pathology as a Sr. Laboratory Technician while in the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene Degree Program at the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences.
Just Spring of 2021 she was taking her FIRST Art class (Drawing 281) at UMASS Boston to enhance her creative abilities. She is now a Full-Time Student and Artist. She is living proof that you can be dedicated, follow your passions and enjoy a healthy work-life balance.
