Lesley Birch is a painter and printmaker based in York, UK. Inspired by wild lands and remote shores, she is interested in a personal response to time and place. Lesley has shown in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the ING Discerning Eye and is a past winner of The Artist Magazine Prize.
"I create paintings with feeling, sparked off by my response to wild places. The fact that certain combinations of colours, certain marks and movements can convey an atmosphere; that is the joy of painting for me - the exciting moment when material and emotion meet."
