Leisl is a spontaneous and energetic painter whose works make no apology for focusing on beauty.

A full time artist since 2015, Leisl's practice is split between landscape and still life work. She has received considerable attention for her landscape work in particular, having been shortlisted in numerous Australian Art Prizes including the Hadleys Landscape Prize in 2018, the Tattersalls Landscape Prize and Clayton Utz Art Award in 2017, and the Paddington Art Prize, Waverley Art Prize and Pro Hart Outback Art Award in 2016.

Whether it's a bucolic rural scene or a voluptuous and sensual botanical work, Leisl's gestural paintings are inspired by (and aim to capture)the beauty and virtues of the subject.
