About Me

About Me

My name is Lesley Caltieri and I live in North Yorkshire, UK.    I live close to the North York Moors, the Coast and the Dales.   Northumberland is a short distance North and the Lake District is  to the West.  Plenty of inspiration for my art work!

Most of my work focuses on Nature in its many guises. I’m quite impulsive when I’m deciding what to paint. Nature really is a limitless source of inspiration – a shady wood, a burgeoning vegetable patch or even a Mediterranean court yard. So putting it into a nutshell I just try and capture the beauty of nature.

I work predominantly in watercolour and try to paint en plein when weather permits  My studio is also our home which I share with my husband and with a few adjustments we have created a working space with good natural  light even in the depths of winter.
