Lezlee started drawing when she was about four years old and hasn't stopped. Her parents were the driving factor for her to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and concentration in Illustration from Winthrop University. After graduating, she accepted a position as a graphic artist at an Atlanta advertising agency where she worked for several years. Lezlee helped create, manage and propel corporate brands for some of Atlanta's leading companies. From there she switched to the product side of the business and became the Senior Art Director for an up-and-coming company. Lezlee was in charge of new product development and brand management. It was at this company that Lezlee realized how much she enjoyed product design and that inspired her to branch out on her own as a licensed illustrator.
