Lesley Rosochodski: Painter

I have always felt drawn to express myself through art. After a career as an art teacher, I continued to develop my oil and watercolour skills and now I paint full time as my career of choice.

My inspiration lies in the beauty and tragedy of my surroundings in the Macedon Ranges. Local wildlife, scenery and flora provide my artistic fodder. Through my support of animal rescue groups I have met rescuers and orphaned or injured animals. Their stories concern me so greatly that raising awareness of the fragility of the natural world has become the focus of my art. I try to represent realism and emotion in my wildlife portraits, communicating the soul in their eyes.

My paintings increasingly find their way around Australia and overseas. I have online galleries on my website, Facebook, Instagram, Gallery247 and Oz Art Finder and I welcome commissions and inquiries.
