Profile - Leisl Mott

Leisl Mott’s expressive, contemporary landscape works are recognisable for their painterly, bold brushwork, rural scenes and rapid sgraffito. Working both en plein air and in her Toowoomba studio, Leisl aims to capture the essence of a time and place in her paintings. Leisl has been painting full time since 2017, her work having been shortlisted in numerous national awards for landscape including the Paddington Art Prize and the Hadley’s Prize for Landscape. Leisl’s work was also featured in the 2018 Thames & Hudson publication ‘A Painted Landscape’ by Amber Creswell Bell.
