Meet the maker Lesley Wellings

I have lived on the Isle of Wight for 36 years and am primarily a watercolour artist. I have, however, enjoyed many forms of art since I enrolled for an basic 'how to draw' class at my local Technical College about 15 years ago, eventually gaining my Art Foundation Degree Certificate. My other hobbies include pottery, sewing, pastels and a newly discovered passion for encaustic art. I love to paint landscapes from my photographs of this lovely Island and much of my ceramic work is influenced by the nature to be enjoyed here.
