LESLEY NINNES

Painter

I live and work in St Ives, Cornwall, UK and am a long-time member of Art Space Gallery Co-op, on the Wharf; St Ives Society of Artists, St Ives Arts Club and an associate member of Penwith Society of Arts.

With 'home as a studio' lit by a north and west facing window, my working method is that of a building up of transparent and opaque layers.  Paintings are inspired by a particular place/weather condition or start with one colour on a blank canvas.


The beaches of St Ives at low tide, St Ives Bay and the north Cornish coast are an endless, inexhaustible source of creativity.
