Lesley took up watercolour painting in 1986, shortly after getting married and moving to Maidenhead. Painting had always been a favourite hobby of hers however, and a sketch book always accompaniedher on travels to Europe as a student and on holiday. Lesley studied German and French at Exeter University, during which time she lived in Germany for a year.
More Than Words was launched in 2010 by creative designer Lisa Long. Lisa's lifetime love of interiors, graphic design and typography, combined with a search to find a piece of original artwork forher own home, led her to follow her creative passion. I was struggling to find artwork that had it all - contemporary, premium quality yet reasonably priced, a great talking point and something that was unique and meaningful.
