Lesley Seeger residency in the garden

The emotional impact of nature and the power of colour to impart this is central to Lesley’s work. She is also inspired by contemporary painters such as Gillian Ayres, Howard Hodgkin, Elizabeth Blackadder, Mary Fedden and Ivon Hitchens.

Of her work Lesley says ‘observed in the field and completed in the studio, my paintings becomes a hybrid between the real and imagined, the seen and the felt.’

She works 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.
