Lesley Birch is a Scottish painter and printmaker currently based in York, UK. Her work is an interpretation of feelings and emotions connected to time and place. She has shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the ING Discerning Eye and is a past winner of The Artist Magazine Prize.
"The fact that certain combinations of colours, certain marks and movements can convey an atmosphere - that is the joy of painting for me - that exciting moment when materiality and emotion meet."
