Lesley's inspiration comes from observing and sketching people in everyday situations, from making marks and developing shapes, and from photographs of odd and/or beautiful scenes which have enthused her.
Seascapes, figurative and abstracts are the main genres which she sells, both online and from her tiny pop-up gallery in Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria.
Her motivation to paint has been life-long, having been awarded a scholarship to High Wycombe Art College in her early teens.
