Lesley Thiel

Lesley Thiel is a self taught contemporary realist artist known for her highly detailed figurative paintings. Even as a child she was an observer of the world around her, often seeing artistic compositions in the most mundane settings. Her style and choice of subject rely heavily on her love of the beauty she sees as inherent in all living things, and in a desire to share what she sees with the world. It is this motivation that pushed her to draw and paint from childhood, and which is a constant in her artistic journey. Her work has been influenced by such old masters as Caravaggio, Vigee LeBrun, and the Pre-Raphaelites.

 

Lesley tries to create work that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also carries deeper meanings and messages. Working in oils, either on canvas or on wood panel, her paintings begin with a detailed drawing, which is followed by underpainting, and then finished with the meticulous details for which she is known. Each work takes many hours to complete.

 

Lesley was born in England, but has spent much of her life in Europe and the United States. She studied sciences at London University, obtaining a PhD and working in medical research for several years before deciding to pursue her first love of art. Her work has been included in numerous exhibitions, and can be found in collections throughout the world. She lives and works near Charlotte, North Carolina.
