The 4th Sunday in September is World River's Day

It highlights the many values of our rivers, strives to increase public awareness, and encourages the improved stewardship of all rivers around the world. Rivers in virtually every country face an array of threats, and only through our active involvement can we ensure their health in the years ahead. Use the link to find out more and donate.

A new series of river paintings will be coming soon (the image above is a little taster!

Tracy Lester Artist in her studio

My paintings are influenced by a love of architecture, design and the natural world; attributed to growing up with David Attenborough documentaries and a natural curiosity about the world and how different cultures have shaped their environment throughout history.

I believe that direct interaction with nature strongly influences our wellbeing and happiness. My paintings remind us of the beauty that exists both within and outside of our homes, and reconnect us to the energy of mother earth.

I was featured in a local newsletter in June 2021. Check out the article below to find out more about my art journey and inspiration (click to download)
