Leslie Hutto has a natural love for animals. She enrolled in SUNY Delhi’s pre-vet program where she pursued an intense study of animal anatomy. She combines her well-rounded knowledge of sculpture, animal behavior, and anatomy and marinates this into her own style of rhythm and flow. Her sculptures are known for their intense energy, sense of life and the moment. Her works have been included in Jan E Irving’s Great Dogs Amazing Artists and Woman of Grace series by Judy Ritter. In addition to private collections, Leslie’s commissions include public works and monuments for churches, hospitals, academies, dog clubs and associations, notably the Cathedral of St Paul in Birmingham Al, and the Wichita Greyhound Park. She exhibits annually at the Southeastern Wildlife Expo, Sculpture in the South, Sculpture in Savannah, and Easton Waterfowl Festival, and has exhibited at Sculpture in the Park in Loveland, CO. She continues to teach dog sculpture workshops to teens and adults.
