"I see, I hear, I feel ... I paint"
Lesley Birch is a painter based in York, UK. She has exhibited in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Ing Discerning Eye at the Mall Galleries, London and has a painting in the Royal Marsden Hospital Collection. Lesley was a winner of The Artist Magazine Award in 2016. Her work is a response to what she sees, hears and feels in the landscape. Recent residencies have included the forests of North Wales and the coast at Cape Cornwall. Born in Scotland, much of Lesley's work stems from memories of the West Coast. A predominant interest in texture and colour with expressive mark-making are key features of Lesley's work.
