Welcome to the online portfolio of artist Les Brandt.

As an artist I am celebrating having the time and ability to create works with which I explore form and textures, using primarily wood as a medium. I find the wood I use for my art logged areas, storm damage, or trees cleared for development and which are native to northwest Arkansas - not only to help people appreciate the beauty of our native woods but also because I don’t want my art to come at the expense of the environment.

Many of these pieces are created to allow the viewer to appreciate both the visual and tactile qualities of the form and are meant to be handled.
