Lesley Smitheringale

Many moons ago, I gained a BA with Honours in Design, specialising in Printed Textiles at Glasgow School of Art. I emigrated to Australia and am now living in the Redlands area of Queensland with my husband and cats who’ve adopted us.

I’ve been an artist and educator, teaching art to school children for over 20 years. I now teach extra curricular art to children alongside my own fine arts business as a free-lance illustrator offering art licensing for the very first time. This is an exciting new chapter in my artistic career.

My style has developed over the years into a blend of traditional media and digital. I enjoy combining the two and my love for printed textiles and surface patterns has been re-ignited. My designs are inspired by organic forms, birds and animals with decorative elements, tangles, textures and bold colour palettes. Not to mention a touch of whimsy and fantasy thrown into the mix.

If you’re interested in working with me I’d love to hear about your project or business and you can get in touch with me via the Contact Form on this website.
