An award-winning artist known for uplifting, elegant art and design, Leslie Cober-Gentry’s endeavors include an accomplished illustration career, designing party and performance spaces, teaching at the Fashion Institute of Technology, jurying and curating shows at the Society of Illustrators in New York, and speaking at universities across the country.
