Pen and ink botanical art class at Kumeu Arts

I love being able to inspire others by sharing my passion for the natural world,
painting plants in all their guises and other natural history subjects. 

Here is some feedback from my lastest workshop at Cornwall Park -

'Lesley is a very talented artist. We were amazed how quickly she can draw a feather yet capture all the essence to bring it to live.'

'Just really a privilege to immerse myself within the world of observation, sketching, colouring and responding.'


'Lesley was very helpful and her enthusiasm and experience helped me in my drawing'


Why not treat someone special to a voucher for art classes?
