Lesley Carruthers’ widely acclaimed art is the product of a largely intuitive process, often informed and inspired by the landscapes in which she has lived and worked. Many commissions were undertaken during her time in East Anglia including one for a major piece of public sculpture.
She also appeared in the Anglia TV series ‘Coastal Inspirations’, which featured local artists inspired by the landscape. Her sculpture has been much sought after, often chosen to add a very special kind of visual appeal to a garden or domestic setting.
Returning to her native Scotland in 2010 resulted in an impressive and fascinating new body of work, including some new bronze pieces one of which has been installed in Colquhoun Square in Helensburgh, Argyll. She is currently working almost exclusively with fluid acrylics, producing a new and exciting range of abstract paintings,
Her technique in both sculpting and painting is instinctive: ‘often happening without advance planning or rational thought’. and her creative process is both unpredictable and unfathomable, yet at the same time hugely inspirational.
This website is a showcase for some of her best or favourite works. New paintings are posted regularly on Instagram and Facebook, and often sell directly from these sites. She also has paintings for sale on Amazon Handmade
