My Old Country House

“My Name is Lesli DeVito.  My name before I got married was Leslie Smith…Leslie Jean Mallory Smith… and I live in a BIG Old Country House in Virgina.  I have worn many hats…and hold Multiple Master’s Degrees…and currently I make my living as an Artist.  Turns out this house, and this crazy move to the country, and losing my Mom to Cancer 5 years ago…and everything in between reminded me of who I started out being…and that was the little girl who loved to paint horses and had an easel set up in the basement.  AND the 18 year old College Freshman….who had her college dorm room featured in the University Newspaper because word got around how cute I had decorated it!  It’s what I do.”
