Welcome to my gallery
Hello, welcome to my website. I hope that you enjoy looking at my work. The images are some of my favourites from an unsystematic trawl of my art.
I am participating in the Highgate Watercolour Group's Annual Exhibition which runs between Wednesday 30 October and Monday 25 November and which will be held in the historic Lauderdale House, Highgate Hill, London N6, and will be showing a collection of recent work, some of which is here on the website.
Opening Hours at Lauderdale House are: Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays: 11am - 4pm; Thursdays*: 11.30am-4pm; Fridays*: 11am-4pm; Saturdays: closed; Sundays*: 3rd and 10th November, 11am-4pm *Check with Lauderdale House on 020 8348 8716
Lauderdale House also has a cafe which serves light lunches and teas, and is worth a visit in its own right. It is set in the beautiful Waterlow Park.
I have been painting in watercolour for nearly three decades, and continue to find creating images in watercolour and other media on paper a fascinating experience. I am out and about with my art gear as much as possible, in London, East Anglia, and wherever anybody is kind enough to invite me. I belong to the Highgate Watercolour Group, the Islington Art Society, and the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists, and go painting with the London Urban Sketchers and the London Cafe Sketchers when dates allow. I am also on Instagram as suesymslees.
I drew and painted as a child, teaching myself how to draw horses, an obsession for many years. I have an art A-level, and as an adult studied under the excellent teacher Peter Evans. Since then I have learnt from painters around me, available teaching aids and the occasional painting course and class. I am still learning, and I very much hope that I always will be.
Some of the paintings are for sale and are marked with an asterisk. (Others are now in other collections, or in my sketchbooks.) My prices are very affordable, so if you are interested in acquiring a piece of my art please contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do enjoy looking through my images, and please come back, I will be putting up new work regularly.
Best wishes, Sue
