Lesley Alexander-Smith is a botanical and natural history artist living in Riverhead, Auckland. Inspiration for Lesley’s art comes from all around her and finds nature journaling a good way to relax, explore and learn about different locations she visits.
She predominantly uses watercolour, graphite and ink in her work and has recently started working on vellum and experimenting with simple printmaking techniques. She likes to paint subjects with character – not always the prettiest or brightest but often the ones past their best, all the knobbly, imperfections Mother Nature throws at us and through her work allow others to see their individual and understated beauty.
