Lesley Ninnes

Lesley NinnesLesley Ninnes lives and works in St Ives, Cornwall (UK).  A long-time member of Art Space Gallery co-op, on The Wharf, she is also a member of St Ives Society of Artists, St Ives Arts Club and an associate member of Penwith Society of Arts.

With ‘home as a studio’ lit by a North and West facing window, her working method is that of a building up of transparent and opaque layers.  Paintings are inspired by a particular place/weather condition or start with one colour on a blank canvas or board.  The beaches of St Ives at low tide, St Ives Bay and the north Cornish coast are an endless, inexhaustible source of creativity.

“Painting is exciting because each artwork is a new journey into the unexpected, even with an existing idea the outcome is unpredictable.”

Lesley’s work has been twice selected for exhibition at ING Discerning Eye, Mall Galleries, London and the RWS Annual Open Watercolour Exhibition, Bankside, London.  Her paintings have also been shown at Bristol Affordable Art Fair, Edinburgh Art Fair, the Northern Art Show and Bath Society of Artists Annual Open.  Her paintings are held in private collections world-wide.
