Illustrator: Following an extensive career in print and marketing design, Lesley now works across children’s picture books, private commissions and commercial illustration.
Passionate about experimentation, Lesley uses a combination of vibrant pencil, pastel and ink and is never afraid to stretch the boundaries of techniques.
The intricate ‘micro-worlds’ and detail within Lesley’s work is fast becoming her feature trademark. Weaving hidden surprises, not always seen first glance, is a quirk inspired by such great artists such as Frida Kahlo and Graeme Base.
