Anthony Lester

Anthony has been painting the West Cork landscape since he and his family first bought a house near Schull over forty years ago. His mother was an accomplished artist and worked in oils. Anthony works mainly in watercolour and his use of line within these pieces, all created en plein air, show his skill as a draughtsman. Anthony has organised annual watercolour groups in Schull for many years, where practitioners of all levels come together to share their practice. This is the first time that Anthony has agreed to exhibit some of his work.

All proceeds from sales of Anthony’s work at the Aisling Art Gallery exhibition will be donated to ’Music as Therapy International’. Both Anthony’s wife, Katya, and Jo Ashby are trustees of this small international charity.
