With a passion for traditional drawing and painting techniques Lea captures the everyday sights and characters of her Crewe life. Using bright acrylics, crayon, and collage techniques her enjoyment of the process spills through in her appreciation of the mundane.  Originally from north Wales she is struck by the contrasting calmness of the cheshire flat landscape.  Her eyes are continually drawn upwards -not only because of her hight- but spellbound by the restless sky.
