CHARACERIZATION AND STORYTELLING IN LESLEY FEATHERSTONE’S ART CONTEMPORARY

Mother and Child

Lesley Featherstone has uploaded some beautiful art contemporary onsite recently. She signed up only a week or two ago and has amassed a huge amount of hits on her ArtTraffic profile.

Our newest high profile member has a fascinating history in the art world. She graduated with a BA in Fine Art Painting from the Wimbledon School of Art and has worked in and around art since 1985. Lesley is, not only a trained art therapist, she has worked as a Head of Creative Arts Therapies, an installation-artist and a painter (to name a few).


Lesley developed such a passion for sketchbooks and the stories you could create within them that she went through a period of tie where she produced exciting and whimsical sketchbook art. Her first sketchbooks were very well-received and, eventually, most drawings were sold and many were sold out as a limited edition prints in The Louche (a London-based art event).

Due to Lesley’s incredible success, she was asked to make two public art installations and was encouraged to start painting again. She was asked to do a solo exhibition for International Women’s Week and was plastered on the front cover for the Sunday Review (for Kent). She has also delved into more prints and even postcards.

Now, that’s a small history of Lesley Featherstone. Viewing the artwork is up to you! Click on the link in order to see what all the fuss really is about!

You’ll love the sketch-esque techniques and the movement involved. Seriously.
