Lesley Gray



I trained as a Graphic Designer at Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town. In the United Kingdom I worked in Computer Graphics industry.

Colour and transient light are my inspiration. I love the fluidity and colours of Turner’s watercolours and the softness of Monet’s oils.

I’ve exhibited at various galleries in London including The Mall Galleries, Bankside, RCA, Llewellyn Alexander Gallery, Morley, etc.

Recently I moved to Ramsgate from London and am enjoying a lifelong ambition to paint full time, live by the sea and walk barefoot on the sandy beaches with my dog. As a scuba diver I’m fascinated by marine life and the reflective quality of light on and in the sea.
