“My paintings and printmaking relate to feelings and memories about experiences and places. I like to work in series experimenting with different media ranging from oils, oil pastels and inks to acrylics and pure pigments. My travel sketchbooks feed into my practice helping me gather ideas. Mostly, though I’m relying on my intuition. My memory holds a record of places, people and emotions and I’m accessing that part of myself when I paint.” Lesley Birch 2016
