Lesley Dabson

Lesley gained a degree in Graphic Design at Coventry. After a long break to raise the family she returned to art in 2008. Her chosen subjects are mainly marine and she works predominantly in oil. Lesley also enjoys pastel and charcoal figure work and is a member of the Hesketh Hubbard Art Society. Lesley loves to paint water and boats of all description; houseboats, fishing boats, dinghies, dive boats etc. Britain’s coastal towns and villages and inland waterways offer endless material for her work. Her favoured combination marries the fine linear detail of a man made craft juxtaposed with the more abstract quality of water. The majority of her paintings are small, typically 20 x 25 cms, her drawings are much larger. Lesley has had work exhibited with The Royal Society of British Artists, The Royal Institute of Oil painters, The Society of Women Artists and the Royal Society of Marine Artists. Painting: Soft light
