“Leslie landed in the lavender and olives of Provence in 2004...fork in hand...” so began La Fourchette in 2006. Fast-forward to this moment...with survival issues managed (every ex-pat knows what I'm talking about!), I return to the original passion that brought me to France: photography.
A quote from Wynn Bullock (20th century photographer) comes to mind as I define myself as a photographer:
"At 42, I decided to become a photographer because it offered a means of creative thought and action. I didn't rationalize this, I just felt it intuitively and followed my intuition, which I have never regretted."
Shortly after I began following my passion and traveling to France to shoot photographs, Façonnable picked them up for their US market. A card line was featured at Nordstrom and small French-themed boutiques throughout the US.
Now, in the golden wash of light that is the south of France, I continue my psychotherapy practice and passion for photography.
