Extremely excited to have Lesley Bergen on the blog! Her modern approach to pointillism and saturated hues create stunning portraits of nature.
Lesley Bergen is a fine artist most know for her colorfully patterned dot paintings which include both abstracts as well as representations of forest creatures. Lesley describes her work as contemporary-pop-folkart. She draws her influence from these styles as well as naïve and primitive art.
Lesley's other current artistic projects include curating a miniature art gallery 'A Very Tiny Art Gallery' found on Instagram at @averytinyartgallery which feature her own works, a place where she can share and showcase her art infused ideas and experiments in a miniature form. Also a practitioner of the needle arts, Lesley has a follow-along-work-in-progress embroidery project called 'The Lollipogs of Lester Lake' which also can be found on Instagram at @thelollipogsoflesterlake. She has illustrated and authored 'Room To Colour', a colouring book filled with a selection of her room drawings which can be found at most popular online book sellers.
Lesley lives and works in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Her other interests include spending time with family, hiking in Banff, yoga, running and summer swimming at her local lake.
Lesley regularly posts updates of works in progress as well as finished work at @lesleybergen on Instagram and has more work in her online shop at www.lesleypaints.com
