Lesley Jane



Lesley Jane was born in Perth, Western Australia in 1963. After studying Fine Arts and Design and Textile Design she became particularly inspired by the European masters, especially the 17th century Dutch Baroque artists who placed great emphasis on realism, chiaroscuro and depth of colour. Her works incorporate many of their techniques and her still life studies reflect the same focus on detail adopted by these old masters.
Lesley painstakingly renders the intricate patterns of antique blue and white china as a podium for the delicate blue wren. These two subjects complement each other beautifully and their fragility is accentuated in her works. Lesley’s fascination with this tiny rare bird came from her many visits to the old growth forests found in the south west of Western Australia.
This rugged coastline has also provided great inspiration for her more recent works, which are abstract landscapes, incorporating interpretations of elements of sand and water from this area.
Lesley is also an accomplished portrait artist, credited with many private commissions. Her preferred medium is oil. However, she enjoys working with other media such as gouache, pen and ink, acrylic and mosaic. She currently tutors privately in oil painting.
Her work is represented in numerous galleries in Western Australia and her work is collected both locally and internationally.
