Her knowledge of design, style, and her excellent resources for furniture, art, and fixtures combined to give us the right design support we needed. It was essential to maintain control of a high volume of details and specifics while moving the project forward. Lesli's ability to work effectively with our team was a critical success factor, keeping our project on time and on budget. The bottom line is, she is an artist and treats every project as a perfect opportunity to achieve the reflection of her client's ideas and design goals. She is organized, responsive, and stands behind her work 100%. We could not give her a higher recommendation".

- Nik Gjonaj, Pop Diner, Dallas, Texas

"I know you went through a lot to pull this off with such a short timeframe. I want you to know it did not go unnoticed and is very much appreciated.

 The paintings that you did and that are in the guest bedrooms meshed perfectly. The blown glass and “fill in” pieces all around the house blew my mind. The little additions in bathrooms etc I totally didn’t expect and was very nice to come home to. You without questions surpassed my expectations which is hard to do. Going above and beyond to make sure this got finished before I arrived I know I said you didn’t have to do. The mere fact that you killed yourself to do it anyway, coupled with the high level of quality made you an MVP. Without question I will refer you as well as use you again. I also admire how you consciously watch budgets and try and “shop”. Out of all the interior decorators that I have used in California, Mexico, and Dallas this was dramatically refreshing to see."

- Private Residence, Dallas, TX

"Lesli has a great ability to listen to the client, provide ideas, and put everything together...with a finished product that pleases the customer, but also adds warmth and conversation to all the areas in which she places art.   Her selections are up-to-date, and always bring lots of comments from others.  She is efficient, reliable, has great taste, and always tried to please us as her customer.  We have used her both professionally and personally. 

I highly recommend Lesli, as a professional who not only makes choosing art easy, but also fun."

- Dr. David Godfrey, Glaucoma Associates of Texas

"In regards to Lesli's design capabilities I was very happy and surprised by her overall project.  She brings in a unique style that made my bar very warm for the female patrons but still kept a sports theme. She brought in design aspects that I could not of even thought of and rounded out my masculine side and provided a great finished product."

-Tony Winkler, Owner, The Nodding Donkey, Fort Worth, Texas

Lesli is an amazing and talented designer/artist. She helped my husband and I design the complete remodel of our home. With so many decisions to make, it was so nice to have her guidance and expertise along the way. She would listen to what we liked and ideas we had, then would put it together in a presentation with some of her artistic designs to give us a visual picture. This is a very helpful aspect, so you know what your getting before it's done. Lesli was always a phone call or text away for any questions I had, even the little things like what rug I should get when I couldn't decide! Lesli is very professional and punctual, she would be a great addition to any design job!

- Ben & Alyssa Roelke, Private Residence, Dallas, Texas


"I had the pleasure of working with Lesli on several projects for the Brink’s headquarters in Coppell and was impressed with her creative insights and design recommendations for areas around the building. Her help was very appreciated and look forward to working with her again as the need arises."

- Raul Castro, Creative Brand Specialist, Brink's Headquarters


"I had the opportunity to work with Lesli on a recent restaurant project in the uptown area of Dallas. I was most impressed with her ability dive right into an extremely complex project with critical deadlines and very demanding clients. 
The fact that she was capable of creativity and artistry in that situation was impressive, to say the least. 
As a GC, I look forward to working with her again and plan on getting her involved with our future commercial and residential projects."

- Doug Hall


"Lesli came to Nashville and helped us to transform an empty concrete and metal warehouse into a tasting room/bar for our Brewery. She did an outstanding job of sourcing items that were in our price range. I have never been more happy to write a check for art/design."

- Michael Kwas


"We have purchased several pieces of art from Lesli Marshall. We commissioned her to create a specific piece for us and we were thrilled with the final result. She came and hung everything beautifully in our house. "

- Deborah Harvey


"As an interior designer, working with someone like Lesli of Articulation Art is invaluable. She is very professional, quick in response time, knowledgeable and extremely talented and creative. Having someone with her knowledge of artists and art vendors saves a lot of time and money when I'm looking for art for a Client. It's extra helpful that she's a talented artist herself so if you can't find exactly what a Client is looking for - she'll create something custom for you! 

I highly recommend using Articulation Art on your next commercial or residential project."
