Leslie Cerier: Photographing the Jewels in the Water

Light. Water. Transformation.

When I take my camera into the woods, I feel my connection with the forest. It’s like meditating – a way to get back to my own true nature. The sun calls me to a particular spot and I click the shutter when I see that rich, afternoon light … dancing light. Most of these photographs are taken within walking distance of my Western Massachusetts home. They are a celebration of New England seen through the eye of my heart. My work is about inspiration and healing – about being so present in the moment that everything vibrates and shines. These photographs are about sun light. I see perfection in nature – patterns – artistic jewels that reveal themselves.

My grandmother painted copies of Impressionist paintings by Monet, Degas, Renoir, and Cezanne. Her apartment on the beach was decorated with her beautiful artwork and those paintings live inside of me. My mother always encouraged me to be original and creative. When I was a little girl, I was given a camera instead of a paintbrush. Like the Impressionists, I am passionate about light, water and landscapes. My photography is a reflection of the peaceful energy I find in the woods. Living in the moment, I capture beauty as I click the shutter. These images can be looked at from different angles. There is no one right way to explore them. Please relax, take your time, have fun. I invite you to look for faces and figures; there are jewels in the water.

When you buy my work, feel free to hang it any way you like. The creative process doesn’t end with Leslie Cerier. I hope my impressionistic photography brings you great joy.

Impressionistic Nature Photography for Inspiration and Healing

Our staff at Healthcare Art Consulting really enjoyed collaborating with Leslie she is wonderful to work with and was very professional. Her artwork helps enhance a calming environment for patients to enjoy during their treatment.

Leslie’s nature photography is stunningly surreal. The vibrant colors strongly suggest a painting, yet this is nature photography in a very impressionistic style. I am thoroughly pleased with the purchase!

When my mother first mentioned to me that she was gathering testimonials about her work for her website and wanted to know if write one. I thought to myself; I feel this calm state of mind and I go to a whole other place for a bit when I look at her work. But, is that because she is my mom and I am deeply inspired by her? Is it biased that I am incredibly touched and moved by her work in Western MA How do I accurately portray what a gift and a blessing it feels like to wake up to her work every day, to be able to look on my walls and feel her energy and take part in her beautiful gifted eye? But then, as I thought about it more I realized it’s not just me who appreciates and feels the magic she captures in her photography. It is everyone who comes over. There is not one person who has entered my home who has not commented on at least one of my mothers pieces of artwork. There is not one client who’s entered my massage room who is not mentioned something about the work hanging in the treatment room. She sees and captures the moment in such a creative way. I feel extremely lucky to have her work all around me and to share the magic she offers in her work with so many others. If you do not yet have a piece of Leslie Cerier’s artwork , I highly highly HIGHLY recommend purchasing one (or more than one for that matter ) The energy she captures is truly magical. By putting Leslie Cerier’s work in your home or office, you WILL truly up the vibration of your space.
