Lesley Seeger exhibition
The emotional impact of nature and power of colour to impart that, is central to my practice. Contemporary painters such as Gillian Ayres, Howard Hodgkin, Elizabeth Blackadder, Mary Fedden and Ivon Hitchens are an inspiration.
‘Observed in the field and completed in the studio, my paintings becomes a hybrid between the real and imagined, the seen and the felt.’
I work on up to seven pieces at a time. Each collection contains both landscapes and semi-abstract florals, whose styles and methods inform and compliment each other.
An art foundation at York Art College was followed by a BA in English & Media and postgraduate training in art therapy. I worked for many years in Community Arts including mental and physical health and was artist in residence in the Renal Unit of York Hospital for six years.
A self-taught painter I have been painting for twenty three years and exhibit widely. I have work in public and private collections at home and abroad.
