Lesley Richmond is a fiber artist born in Cornwall, England who lives and works in Vancouver, Canada. Inspired by nature and the architectural elegance of trees she creates beautiful textile artworks.
For her stunning textile trees, Lesley starts photographing them, focusing on the intricacy of their branching structures and prints the images on cloth, using a medium that creates a dimensional surface. She eliminates selected background areas, leaving the structural images of trees as the dominant feature. The images are then painted with metal patinas and pigments, creating an illusion of organic decay.
