Leslie Eiler Thompson

With a math-teaching father and art-teaching mother, it’s no surprise that Leslie Eiler Thompson’s work strikes a balance between craft and calculation.

Raised in Northern Illinois, Leslie grew up among the Midwestern sentiments of hard work ethic and resolve. Spending most of her childhood and adolescent years on a theatrical stage sparked an attitude of curiosity, one which has developed into a life-long calling to humanize - to write from experience, to sing with a heart, to perform with purpose.

Inspiration strikes the Leslie in the English-Ivy covered hills just outside of Nashville, Tennessee.
