Medium: Acrylics and Oils on Canvas
Lesley studied graphic design at Bournemouth art college in the UK. She worked as an art director in the design and advertising industry and as a freelance designer before becoming a lecturer in visual communication.
She was recently invited to become a mentor for the online course “in the studio: postwar abstract painting”, run by MoMA and hosted by coursera.
Happy to work on figurative pieces, Lesley finds working on abstract paintings more fulfilling as this allows her the freedom to express herself.
Inspired by Abstract Expressionism, especially the philosophical approach of colorfield painters, Lesley explores themes such as the passage of time, and questions our assumptions and preconceptions or reflects on loss, conveying fleeting and intangible emotions.
Lesley is also developing a series of short run, hand tinted relief prints.
