Hello and welcome to my shop!

My name is Leslie, and I am the artist behind Myrtle's Studio. I have designed and crafted each item with great love and attention to detail in my St Paul studio. Trained in Fine Arts at Parsons School of Design in Paris and New York, I've settled in Minnesota to raise my family. Through the years I've worn many creative bonnets: visual merchandiser; retail buyer; floral designer; event planner; fine artist; holiday tree trimmer; and support person! I amuse myself with fairy tales, the great hunt to find the next beautiful thing, a good dose of nostalgia, a Cinderella complex, and the constant refrain, "It's all about the story!"
