POSED (article first published : 2003-06-5)

A well known artist living in Kloof, Lesley Magwood Fraser is currently exhibiting at the Grilroom Café in Innes Road.

Painting in oils and drawing in various media such as ceramics, Lesley exhibits widely in South Africa and is represented in private collections around the world. She has recently sold works over the Internet to Hong Kong and the Netherlands.

She has been drawing with Jeanette Gilks for over 10 years, specialising in figure drawings using charcoal, graphite and pastel. She also paints with Maggie Strachan, focusing mainly on translating her drawings into oil paint using her fingers instead of the usual brushes.

“All the paintings on the exhibiton are done from life drawings that I have done over the last few years at my Garrett Art classes with Jeanette Gilks,” she explains. “I am now painting with Maggie Strachan and she has enabled me to develop this new style, using my fingers and drawing into the wet paint with my nails.”

Contact Lesley on 082 770 7404. The number for the Grillroom Cafe is 031 312 3456.
