Lesley White - Premium Artist

Lesley White paints oils on canvas in a realistic style. Her work is a collection of witnessed or experienced events in the life of the working cowboy, the daily challenges they face, their connection to family, the land and their animals. The use of strong colour, contrasts of shadow and light and her feel for design, deliver unique visual interest to her work. She believes there is a little 'cowboy' in all of us and this belief is at the core of her work.

Lesley White's rural beginnings connect her to the core of this lifestyle and although life's path took her on an urban journey for a time, the feel, smell, and vision of ranching was always with her. It was those senses that eventually pulled her back to her roots.

Lesley holds a deep respect and admiration for people who have chosen this tough but rewarding way of life and hopes that she can contribute to its preservation by eternalizing it through her work as a visual artist.

Time spent in the saddle and painting outdoors are the two main methods used to gather photographic references and to paint colour studies in order to later compose a painting in her studio. Experimentation with various mediums has resulted in her choosing oil paint to best express the excitement and passion she feels toward her subject. Lesley continues to learn and grow through the use of books, workshops, and by simply putting miles on the brush every day.
