Hi – my name is Leslie and I recently moved from Los Angeles to Vancouver Island, Canada where I grew up. I started my blog, A Creative Mint, to share and store my little projects and photographs. I am interested in all aspects of design, from collage and watercolors to architecture and cooking!

I have both a degree in Architecture and Interior Design. However, I never really practiced either. Immediately after finishing school I had the opportunity to team up with a manufacturing and distributing company. In collaboration with them I developed, designed and did packaging direction for lots of products sold in many of the major retailers in North America.

I loved my job but the deadlines, days of travel around the country and long trips to Asia did not fit with my idea of family life. When I had my first child five years ago I stepped away. I still consult from time to time but most of my days are occupied with my little kids or dreaming about what I can do here for you… little projects that I want to share.
