Lesley Anne Derks
Lesley Anne Derks graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1999 with a BA(hons) Fine Art Drawing and Painting.
Her early work was inspired by the lights of the Grangemouth petrochemical complex and this influence led to her painting predominantly cityscapes at night. More recently she has begun to explore lights in a different way, focusing on interiors in particular chandeliers and the different lights they can convey.
She has exhibited extensively throughout the UK and abroad, with her work being exhibited in galleries in London, Hong Kong, USA and Australia. Her work has appeared in leading magazines and newspapers such as The Strand Magazine, Artists and Illustrators, Fine Art Collector and the Scotsman.
She is regularly commissioned, and most recently completed a painting for Scottish Power, to mark the closure of Longannet Power Station.
