Her work is part of both the Art Renewal Center Collection and the Bennett Collection of Women Artists. Born in England, she now lives and works in Ireland.
Lesley Thiel’s work explores our connection to, and dependence upon, Mother Earth and nature. She paints the young women she sees as our future leaders and saviours into organic forms that grow out of trees, rocks, and plants.
Depicting the landscapes, flora, and fauna of the surrounding countryside, her pieces are imbued with traditional symbolism that she uses to weave a story.
Lesley has chosen surrealism as a way to show the complexity of the natural world and our relationship to it.
