Lesley graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1982 with a Degree in Honours in Design, specialising in Printed Textiles.

She has taught adults drawing and silk painting at TAFE colleges and is currently teaching art in a private college in the Gold Coast, Queensland.

"My favourite subject matter is flora & fauna and I am very lucky to live in Queensland where there is an abundance of stunning flowers & wildlife. I can get very close to the native birds and possums with my camera when they come down to the garden for a feed".

Beautiful book. Your compositions show a balance that makes for a very pleasant view. There is so much sensitivity in your images - it shows your love of wildlife. Your work makes the reader empathize with your subjects, we feel as though they are our friends. So well crafted. Lovely work!
