Leslie Stones

Leslie Stones Image
Leslie lives in Norton, a small village near Doncaster. Before becoming a professional artist in the early 1990's, he had worked in the building trade as a joiner, as a mining electrician, and as a BT cable jointer. He has exhibited work in many leading UK galleries and exhibitions, including with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, and the Royal Society of Marine artists at the Mall Galleries, London.

Leslie is best known for his traditional oil paintings of the British countryside and farm animals. I first came across Les’s work many years ago when he had quite a tight style, but since then he has deliberately developed a more painterly approach, and the juicy brushstrokes are very evident in his new work.

Latterly, he has taken a step back from painting to concentrate on his growing family of grandchildren, but I’m really pleased to say that he is back painting again in earnest and we are delighted to show his work in the Gallery where it deserves to be seen by a wider audience.

Les is not a brash person, preferring to shrink away from the limelight, but his paintings scream out at you, as I’m sure you will see.
