Lesley Ninnes


A native of St Ives, Lesley Ninnes is a versatile artist whose career spans two decades. With a repertoire that encompasses a range of styles and subject matter, using various media and supports, this is a person who continues to find painting an exciting, stimulating and rewarding vocation. Interested in light, reflected light, symmetry, balance, colour and tension, her working method when using oil and acrylcs is the same as when painting in watercolour, that of a building up of transparent and opaque layers. She likes to work on several projects at once, preferably a mix of abstract and representational subjects. Paintings evolve from ideas that have formed over time or are inspired by a particular place/weather condition, and those that start with one colour on a blank canvas. The last is a sort of quest, reviewing, modifying and refining the painting over days or weeks until reaching a conclusion.
