The Artist's Story

She continued to push these undiscovered boundaries while she attended a one year mentoring programme at the Turps Art School in London - 2015 working alongside other professional painters while being mentored by established artists such as Marcus Harvey, Dan Coombs and Phillip Allen. Lesley's rigorous practice continues to explore how painting can be viewed and she continues to explore how to paint outside of traditional realms. After moving to her new studio in 2020 she has expand her artistic practice beyond her artwork where she creates and sales beautiful handmade products cast in Jesmonite.
