Lesley, based in Lymm studied at Manchester Metropolitan and Glyndwr Universities, graduating with an Applied Arts degree in 2011, specialising in glass.
Her fused glass work is centred upon simple observational drawings of everyday life and scenes, which she traps within fused glass layers. Kiln alchemy adds dynamism to her narrative work. This technique is applied to produce framed glass pictures, bowls and dishes, coasters and jewellery.
Along with producing work for exhibition, Lesley enjoys making glass to order and has completed commissions celebrating weddings, milestone birthdays and special gifts. She also regularly demonstrates copper-foil glassmaking at Fairs and events and has recently been appointed Director of Trading at Victoria Baths Restoration Project, Manchester.
