Leslie Nichols is a Kentucky-based artist whose primary artistic tool is the typewriter. She has a BFA from Fontbonne University and an MA from Western Kentucky University. While at WSW, she experimented with the metal- and wood-type of the letterpress to create new rhythms and patterns in her portraits. By echoing the phrase “My Dear Sister,” Leslie’s work became a love letter to the print medium and fellow women.
