Welcome Visitors!

For those who don’t know me, I’m a designer formally trained in landscape architecture, building architecture, and urban design. Working full-time in a landscape architecture firm in New York City, I practice graphic art on the side to improve my design and technical skills, while exploring new ways to express myself creatively.

I initially posted artwork online under the alias “Anthropolesley”, which has evolved into a collection of quite “bohemian” pieces; and I’m still editing the collections to find my voice. Malapit Design is a bit closer to my heart as I hope to post more pieces that are inspired by the work I do on a daily basis as a landscape designer. I hope to populate this collection with modern-inspired artwork, collages of places that give a sense of location, and of course plants…lots of plants. A planting palette for a landscape architect is like a painting palette for a painter.

To “frame” myself into producing bodies of work, you may find me announcing art sales to raise funds for my charity New York Road Runners Team For Kids, and/or for my sister and her kids @EmpireAlchemyWax on Instagram. To be quite honest, its really easy for me to stay within my comfort zone and not stretch my gifts and utilize them on my free time for others. I think doing things for people is a great motivator for me, so here’s hoping this side project will help me grow into a better person professionally and personally.

Thanks for visiting, and if you’re following, I hope this journey is a fun and interesting one for both of us!

All the Best,
Lesley Ann

I’m training for the New York Road Runners Popular Brooklyn Half Marathon in May, and raising $500 for Team For Kids . Its a team of runners raising funds to support athletic programs for children in the USA. You can find out more and make tax-deductible donations on my profile page Here

…Or if you would like to purchase any of my artwork, 50% will be donated to Team for Kids, and 50% will be donated to my sister and her kids at Empire Alchemy Wax on Instagram. Her oldest child is just about to enter high school, the middle is autistic, and the youngest is a toddler. They’re suuuper adorable, and that’s not because I’m their auntie haha! Please support my charity and my family by making donations, purchases, and sending loving thoughts our way. Thank you so much!
