Working mainly in oils, Lesley’s work varies from contemporary impressionism and pointillism, to abstract and expressionistic. She loves using a palette knife, particularly when creating her dreamscapes. Lesley favours working on fine linen canvas and enjoys the variety of using mixed media, especially in abstract. Ceramics and lampshades are also available in Lesley’s unique and handmade style. Commissions are welcome and Lesley invites customers to contact her with ideas, along with a swatch of their home furnishings, should they require something for a particular space. Students are also welcome to take part in Lesley’s tutorials that take place in her purpose-built studio.

Savanna attained an art & Design scholarship to woldingham school in 2009 and studied Art & Design at west kent college - tonbridge 2014 - 2018


Inspired by botanical illustrations and fantasy work such as studio Ghibli films. they have become one of Savanna's biggest influences as an artist, along with artists such as; Luke Dixon, Louis Masai, and Happy D. "Growing up in the countryside, surrounded by wildlife has made me acknowledge every creature and its beauty.. I am drawn to nature because that is who we are...we are nature. I enjoy observing animals and becoming a reflection of how they make me feel. .


I have always worked within the animal industry, thinking that is the career I would inevitably follow. I will never lose my love for animals because that is who I am, nor could I ever lose my passion for art. I intend to always combine the two."
