As you may know, Les is a retired fireman who has painted most of his life for enjoyment.

Les teaches and paints in all mediums, oil, water colors, pencil, and of course subjects include landscapes, people, seascapes, people and animals. Les has had corporate commissions from Conoco, Tor Line and several others as well as undertaking private commissions in the UK and several other countries including Belgium, Norway, Sweden, America and Australia.
Les also now runs classes at New Waltham Village Hall and Wendover Hall Humberston. If you would like more information on his classes, please contact Les on 01472 882168.
