Lesley’s passion is painting in oils and her inspirations are the beautiful rural and coastal landscapes that surround her, capturing the particular Irish light and tones is her ultimate goal.

Lesley’s work explores themes of containment, secrecy and memory. She uses a variety of medium including drawing, painting, sculpture and photography. Media is chosen to articulate subjects such as loss of control, memory, fragility and transience. Her painting process of layering and scraping back, allows for close observation and intimate studies of texture, light and colour but particularly of tones and values which represent her surroundings and mood.
