My name is Les Macdiarmid.   I was born in Detroit, raised in Chicago, and now reside in Tennessee.  I have a BFA that I earned in 2005.  Making Art is my full time occupation.
         
          I've been privileged to paint many Portraits and contemporary works for people around the country.  In the last 12 years I have painted over 60 large outdoor murals.
         
         I see making Art as trying to create something new, never before seen, like a dream,  an idea, or a feeling.  It's an imaginative way of describing with paint that which is both sensual and spiritual.  Art should appeal to the eye, engage the mind, and challenge the imagination.


          There is no end to the number of painters......among them are a few Artists.
