Les Kendall

Lesley Kendall works from a studio in Brisbane, Australia.

She paints in watercolour and ink and creates sculptures out of paper. Inspired by the natural world, she creates art works from what she sees around her .

Les paints from life - objects are collected on daily walks and taken back to the studio to paint . Painting, writing and walking in nature are quiet times of reflection.

Through the art making process her connection with nature is deepened.

She was the artist in residence at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens for two years in 2016 and 2017.

‘rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.’
