Lesley McLaren was born in Glasgow in 1959. She attended Exeter College of Art achieving a BA(hons) in painting. Inspiration comes from the Scottish countryside. Whilst travelling Lesley collects images in her sketch book and on camera. Back in the studio she seeks to recreate the essence and drama of beautiful Scottish countryside. The result is superb paintings reflecting memories and feelings, where Lesley has often allowed the more dramatic elements of a scene to develop through the language of paint. The finished painting is a little like the end of a little journey. She describes every painting as "the creation of an exciting new world - one which journeys on from reality".
