Lesley was born in Glasgow, 1958.
Inspired by a sense of place, Lesley's paintings are notable for their colour-play, atmosphere and expressive marks.
She aims for semi-abstraction, but still retains that recognisable feeling of place or event experienced. She travels to Ireland, Wales, Scotland, the Yorkshire Dales and Cornwall in search of inspiration.
Lesley has shown in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the ING Discerning Eye and works from both her home studio and PICA Studios in York.
