About Lesley's art


She expresses what she loves - figurative, portraits, seascapes and scenes evoking emotion - a sense of calm, acute observations and, on occasion, humour.

From a strong foundation in art both at school and college, She has successfully sold and exhibited in Brighton, East Yorkshire and Cumbria.


Originals and prints - some framed - can be seen in her pop-up gallery beneath her home studio in Kirkby Stephen.
