About Leslie E. Schafer

I'm a Wyoming artist with an avid love of the outdoors. I grew up in Lander on our family ranch situated at the base of the Wind River Range. Through out my childhood, my mother worked and produced fine art from our home  (oil paintings, bronze sculptures, watercolor, leather craft).  Through her example, I learned to produce works that I found inspiring. 

I received my education in Social Science from the University of Wyoming and my Masters Degree in Education from Regis University in Colorado. While I love teaching, art and fly fishing have remained passions of mine. I love bringing images to life and sharing them with people who appreciate wildlife and the outdoors. My travels up and down Wyoming and Montana rivers provide endless subject matter.
