Lesley (neé Anderson) Smith 

Boats using Mixed Media

Lesley graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1988, specialising in drawing and painting. She says she has a real connection with the landscape and expresses this through bold brushwork and a rich sense of colour. Wherever possible, Lesley works directly from nature, capturing the ever changing elements unique to a Scottish landscape. Many of her paintings show her use of mixed media which she will demonstrate to us in November. For more information and to see more of Lesley’s work go to: www.andersonsmithcreative.com
