j1:9 metallic art is an endeavor by a dear friend, Annette Leslie, in honor of her son, Carson, who lost his battle with cancer last January. On a family trip to Costa Rica, Annette took pictures of the local flora and has now printed the images on sheets of metal. The pieces are available for sale at Sprout and online here with a portion of the proceeds going to pediatric cancer research in honor of Carson. j1:9 metallic art will also soon be seen at The W Hotel in Austin as Annette has been commissioned to capture the essence of UT football for a display in the hotel's lobby.
Here is the Leslie family on a trip to Belize last summer—one of Carson's favorites.
