Barra Beach by Lesley Burden
Barra Beach by Lesley Burden

Having painted for a number of years in different media my work now focusses mainly on pastels.  These pastels form the majority of my work on display.  I feel that pastels bring a rich colour to scenes and landscapes, and gives that soft-edged tone which characterises the wide range of Scotland’s scenery. I have painted since my school days but have had the time and space in recent years to dedicate myself to art.  I have benefited from attending local art classes held by renowned Scottish artists.  I have exhibited at many local exhibitions including Dunkeld, Cupar, Forfar, Broughty Ferry, Dundee Botanic Gardens, and participate in the Open Studios event in North Fife. I also have a website which has an extensive gallery of my paintings at www.lesleyburdenart.co.uk
