Leslie Levings is the creator of the Beastlies! Each Beastlie is made individually by hand. Leslie started sculpting little creatures when she was 10, but took a break through high school and college to pursue photography and writing. None of those things were ever as fun as creating tiny characters out of clay, though, so now she’s back to doing that full time. Leslie is originally from Kansas City and currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband and one too many cats.
