Originally from Scotland, Lesley studied at Edinburgh College of Art where she graduated with honours degree and post graduate diploma in Tapestry design. She is now based in Sample Studios, Cork where her fine art textile practice focuses on ideas relating to the home, domesticity and familial relationships.
Lesley delights in the making process using techniques such as knitting, sewing, crochet, hand and machine stitch. Alongside traditional materials and techniques, she experiment with wrapping and binding materials such as wire, foil, plastic and paper to explore low - relief and 3D surface patterning.
In addition to her own creative practice she teaches and facilitates workshops and is available to work on private/public commissions. Lesley regularly exhibits work in galleries in Cork and Cork County.
