art, landscape architecture, urban design

Lesia brings 15 years of experience in art practice to her work in landscape architecture and urban design, often drawing on her arts-based method of inquiry to inform her work at larger scales. As a designer, her critical interest in water guides her approach to shaping topography, where she employs light, sound, and atmospheric elements to compose physical space. Lesia's work focuses on cultural and ecological projects that range from contemporary gardens to public art installations, memorials, new media artworks, and large-scale environmental design projects.

 

Working from the intimate space of a garden to the larger scale of ecological design, her narrative approach to landscape architecture utilizes a strong commitment to materials to integrate natural systems with human experience. In each of her works, Lesia seeks to create sensitive and resonant spaces that evoke inherent connections with the environment through time and memory.

 

Lesia earned a Master of Landscape Architecture and a Master of Fine Art from the Design School at the University of Pennsylvania. She graduated with a BFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia with Honors, where she received a Beaux-Arts education in painting and sculpture. As an undergraduate in the School of Arts & Sciences at Penn, Lesia's studies focused on art history, comparative literature, and film. 

Lesia has been an artist in residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts and the Vermont Studio Center. Recently, she is the recipient of a Canada Council for the Arts grant for her research on the urban forest. Lesia is currently completing her PDP (Professional Development Program) with the OALA in Ontario.

 

She lives and works in Hamilton, Canada.
