Leslie Crapster-Pregont is an LA-based lighting designer and visual artist who explores human perception and social behavior through light. Drawing on her experiences being raised in northern Wisconsin, attending high school on a 1200 acre plot of wilderness on the border of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, teaching in rural China, and working on Wall Street, Leslie creates work that uses light as the medium to influence humans' perception of their context.


Leslie received a B.A. in Neuroscience and Chinese from Middlebury College in 2012, and is currently an MFA Candidate in Lighting Design at California Institute of the Arts, graduating May 2021.
