‘Sydney by Day’, is painted with oil and enamel on canvas. I love how this viewpoint incorporates 2 of the most iconic structures in Sydney, I also like the contrast of the blue water with the surrounding Sydney suburbs.

Lesley Anne Derks, Artist, Painter. Lesley Anne Derks graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1999 with a BA (hons) Fine Art Drawing and Painting. Her early work was inspired by the lights of the Grangemouth petrochemical complex and this influence led to her painting predominantly cityscapes at night. More recently she has begun to explore lights in a different way, focusing on interiors, in particular chandeliers and the different lights they can convey. Her paintings are much more than a depictive representation. They can be textured using many layers of different mediums. As the work progresses, she may omit areas or replace them. She may peel back to an earlier state thereby revealing what went on before. This process gives a sense of depth to the work as well as giving the paintings a glow like quality. Lesley Anne has exhibited extensively throughout the UK and abroad, with four solo shows and over one hundred and fifty group shows since graduating. Her paintings have been exhibited in galleries in London, Hong Kong, USA and Australia. Her work has appeared in leading magazines and newspapers such as The Strand Magazine, Artists and Illustrators, Fine Art Collector and the Scotsman. She regularly works to commission and has produced work for Scottish Power and the Royal Navy. To discuss works by Lesley Anne Durks please contact Deborah at or call 01869 338 155
