Lesley studied silversmithing in the 1970s gaining a BA Honours. She then went on to teach children with learning difficulties, which she did for over 25 years.
Now retired from teaching, Lesley is spending more time painting - Atmospheric works in pastel and oils, landscapes, boats, beach scenes and figures in lovely muted colours. Inspiration comes from the beautiful Devon landscape.
Lesley is a member of Salcombe Art club, where she exhibits each Summer. She is also a member of both Kingsbridge and Totnes Art clubs, and a member of the Consortium, a small group of artists who exhibit each year in Kingsbridge. She has participated in Devon Open Studios and is a regular exhibitor at Harbour House in Kingsbridge.
