About Lesley

The defined seasons and clarity of light here in South West France are a constant inspiration to me.  Painting in quick drying acrylic paint makes it possible for spontaneous layering of colours.  These layers allude to a multitude of meanings, predominantly the continuous and inescapable chain of life, death and rebirth seen in the wonderful landscapes all around us.  The rhythms, colours and spatial ambiguity in the paintings I hope make them much more than transcriptions of appearance.  They are a responce to it, and look far beyond the surface.

I have an exhibition in my home in South West France every two years.  
 If you are  interested in my work, available paintings are listed in my portfolio.  If you have any messages, comments, or enquiries please look under contact for my information.  I will respond as soon as possible.
