RARE Science works directly with patient families and foundations to find more immediate therapeutic solutions for children with rare diseases.
This year RARE Science is partnering with TQS (and a number of other great organizations) to bring you... the FIRST Ever Celebrity RARE Bear Auction! This is your opportunity to own a signed bear made by the quilt world's most talented artists while helping a great cause.
Meet "Urban Grrrl" by Leslie Tucker Jenison
Urban Grrrl features some of Leslie's trademark use of dye, paint, and thread to create unique imagery on the surface, or should we say "fur-face," of this adorable bear.
You'll want to take to the streets of the big city with this cute, hip bear, and her heart full of love, as your companion.
Star Members can watch Leslie in Show 1510: Screen-Printing Serendipity.
San Antonio artist Leslie Tucker Jenison is inspired by the textural beauty found in the patterns of natural and man-made environments. Leslie loves the tactile experience of working with cloth and paper. Using dye, paint, and thread, Leslie creates unique imagery on these surfaces. The juxtaposition of the macro to microscopic world is a recurring theme in her work.
Long fascinated by the historical connection of quilts and the people who make them, she serves on the board of the Alliance for American Quilts.
Leslie exhibits internationally in galleries and juried exhibitions. Her work is held in both corporate and private collections. Leslie teaches a variety of quilt and mixed media workshops. She curates exhibitions and teaches as one half of Dinner At Eight Artists along with Jamie Fingal.
