Lesli Marshall grew up an athlete, not an artist. But after burning out on sports in high school, she tapped her creative side in college and fell in love with art. It took her years to find her creative stride and says she’s still far from the best.

We sit down with the business savvy creative to learn about her starving artist days, rock bottom moments and how she’s now designing the life of her dreams.
