Lesley’s Studio


I never cease to wonder at the unpredictable beauty of watercolour paints, and enjoy experimenting with colours and papers. I have taught adults in the Cambridge area for over twenty years and happily pass on my discoveries. Over the years I have acquired more painting skills from excellent and varied workshop tutors.

I studied Graphic Design at Maidstone College of Art, and at Brighton gained my teaching qualification. All my working life has been in education, initially as a college technician, then a general class teacher and secondary school art teacher before working in community education, mostly with adults.

The last few years have allowed time for more personal work as I exhibit and sell paintings with the SEAW and the Cambridge District Art Circle. I was fortunate to have a painting chosen to be exhibited at the 2015 open exhibition at the Bankside Galleries in London. In that year I also joined the Cambridge Open Studios, which in itself was a very rewarding, although exhausting, experience. My studio is a shared space where I also hold workshops and teach.
