Lesley Skeates

After studying painting and illustration at Aberystwyth University Lesley became a medical artist, illustrating surgical and anatomical publications, of which Gray’s Anatomy is the best known. 


A number of years ago Lesley started a second career as a painter, mostly of landscapes and seascapes. She uses oil paint and palette knives to create thick impasto effects. 


A keen walker, Lesley likes to immerse herself in the countryside. Painting en plein air, she tries to capture a scene in a few hours. Lesley is drawn to painting water in all its forms; she enjoys the challenge of the constantly changing movement, weather, tide and light effects.
