Held over the north east of Scotland, 128 artists and craftspeople will open their studios to the public from 11-19th September. The event affords people the chance to talk to the artists in a relaxed atmosphere, watch them create, and maybe buy direct from them.
Lesley's studio, in Carmyllie, Angus, will be open on the following dates and times:
- Sat 11th Sept 10-8.00
- Sun 12th 10-5.00
- Monday 13th - closed
- Tuesday -Friday 17th - 10-5.00
- Satu 18th 10-6.00
- Sun 19th 10-5.00
There will be lots of original artwork on the walls, pastels, watercolours, graphite and of course coloured pencil, some of which will be for sale. There will also be prints and cards available. Landscapes, wildlife and portraits, and fantasy inspired by British mythology are her subject matter. There will be works in progress, and demonstrations upon request.
Lesley says, 'it's lovely to have the public visit the studio and talk face to face, as being an artist is a solitary life. It's a great opportunity to talk about my work, and to share information and enthusiasm with people interested in art. If anyone is in the area do come and have a coloured pencil chat over a cuppa.'
Lesley is a Founder Member and Signature member of the UKCPS, and is a tutor of art in Adult Education.
She has exhibited at London Zoo, the Westminster Gallery and NEWA, and her work is in many private and public collections both here and abroad.
