Lesley Seeger, artist from North Yorkshire

Lesley Seeger is a North Yorkshire painter of colourful abstract flowers and landscapes, mainly in acrylic in a format of 3 foot square. She has been painting for 25 years and was influenced by her time in Sri Lanka.  She is artist in residence at Burton Agnes Hall.

Her style of painting changed over the years as she experimented with colours and repeated shapes, sometimes a riot of colour,sometimes limiting to a predominating colour. She also used scratching out to reveal colour underneath.

Her work moved towards landscapes, especially of Yorkshire scenes, with the familiar composition of front, middle and distant with a movement through it. Her work progressed from hot colours into lighter, calmer compositions.
