Lesley Birch is a painter based in York, UK. Her paintings are a response to her emotional experience of the landscape - from Ireland and Scotland to Wales and Cornwall as well as Yorkshire where she lives. She is inspired by the colours, sounds and shapes she observes in mysterious woodlands, empty moors and wide coasts. Lesley is as interested in the quality of the mediums she uses as in the subject itself. Painting instinctively between figuration and abstraction, she makes marks, colours, textures and forms, building up glazes and layers over time.
