An artist at heart

A new work in progress.
“I have always been interested in making art, but I haven’t always lived

In her youth, she imagined herself becoming a ballerina. e orn- Organizations to Help Raise Funds
wood native would eventually go on to attend SUNY Oswego, study-
ing Fine Arts. After college, Leslie moved to Boston where her jobs
included waitressing and working at Emerson College. Life would get
even busier following the birth of her son, though her interest in being
an artist would not wane.“At that point, art wasn’t a priority, it was more
of a hobby,” says Leslie.
Ms. Bijoux would move back to New York in 1991, continuing to cre-
ate art in the form of crafts, jewelry, masks, and leatherwork. She would
eventually remarry, and alongside her husband, Leslie would open Yogi’s
Paw, a trendy boutique located in Mount Kisco that sold jewelry, cloth-
ing, and accessories. e duo would run the business together for sixteen
“It was a wonderful, magical experience,” recalls Leslie. “It was fabu-
lous, but it was also all-consuming, running a business is 24/7/365.”
In 2019, Leslie and her husband made the decision to close Yogi’s
Paw and she found herself at a creative crossroads. It was at this point
that she decided to dive into the lifestyle that she had always dreamed
“I was going to live an artist’s life,” says Leslie. “I decided to make
artwork a priority.”
Inspired, Leslie began painting again. However, an obstacle arose
with the outbreak of Covid last year.
“I just froze creatively, I actually put my paints away”she recalls.“I had
so much anxiety about what was going on in the world.”
However, the creative block was short lived, as Leslie discovered that
the artist within was more powerful than even a global pandemic. It was
this mentality that led to the creation of her latest series of paintings,
“I just had to keep going and trust the process, every day I just started
doing something” she explains. “I did a series of hearts, and by doing
them, I was replacing a piece of myself that I lost during the pandemic.”

Fittingly, Ms. Bijoux’s “Reclaimed Heart” will be on display at Arts-
Westchester’s gallery reopening exhibit next month which showcases
artwork inspired by and created during the pandemic.
“ is is a great place to start showing. I feel very fortunate, and I’m so
excited,” adds Leslie.
