Lesley Butman uses watercolor as her primary medium to explore the landscapes of her native New England. Her work ranges from representational images of iconic barns, stonewalls and mountainscapes to abstract landscapes capturing the essence and emotional resonance of place. She is most noted for portraits of wildlife that are imbued with a palpable character and soul. Butman archives this by employing various techniques from traditional brush work to the use of unconventional found items. She lives and works in Orford, NH.
I really love your pieces. The bee in the thistle particularly! How very beautiful. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.
