Lesley Shaw is now based in York, having lived and worked in London for 23 years. Since completing a BA (Hons) in Visual Communication Design, she continues to produce art for both exhibition and private sale.
Lesley works in a wide range of mediums, currently enjoying a return to traditional printmaking. Primarily using lino, mono and drypoint techniques.With a background in illustration, life drawing is always the starting point, figurative or animals being the primary subjects. Simplified shapes and lines, flat bold colours, lend themselves well to print, and reflect the inspiration of late 19th century Parisian lithographs and the iconic graphic poster art of the 1930s and 40s.
Lesley has sold work at the Mall Galleries London, to the BBC, Manya Igel Fine Arts and was shortlisted last year for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
