Discover Lesley Palmer at the International Spring Fair

How did LESLEY PALMER ART start? 

It started with me deciding to follow my dream of turning professional and painting for a living, as it’s what I’ve loved to do all my life, turning beautiful real life animals, into paintings which are equally as beautiful, to have on my wall. 

Describe LESLEY PALMER ART for us? 

I create images of beautiful things, mainly horse, wildlife and other animals into paintings. I paint in contemporary or traditional styles, and use oils, watercolours, acrylics or pastels to recreate the animals I see beauty in.


What will you be bringing to the International Spring Fair with you? 

I will be bringing 7 original, framed paintings with me, including ‘Stormy Stag’, ‘Hell for Leather’, ‘Race like the Wind’ and ‘Float like a Butterfly’, and about 14 Limited Edition, signed, mounted,  giclee prints of recent images. I will also be bringing a selection of blank greeting cards, which have been created from my images.

What can you tell us about the opportunity being given to you by Buy-From Shropshire and the Giftware Association to exhibit at the Spring Fair? 

This is an amazing opportunity, and although I find it quite daunting, I am also very excited to think that there is a huge potential for more people to see the artwork I produce. Thank you muchly BFS x       

With all that you have achieved so far in your business, what are you most proud of? 

I am most proud of a contemporary racehorse picture I painted, that was sold within 12 hours of it going public.


 What are your plans for your business in the future? 

I hope to expand the number of galleries I exhibit through, and would like to have my commission orders book full up for a year in advance!! I’d also love to get into some of the bigger galleries, and exhibit some of my equestrian/animal work at some larger Art/Horse/Animal shows. I would also like to build a studio in my garden at home, so I can produce much larger pieces of work!

Do you have a favourite/best-selling product/design? 

I love painting horses, contemporary or traditional, in any medium…the bigger the better!      

Do you have any new products or designs out for the International Spring Fair? 

Yes, I have a new contemporary racehorses painting, and a number of new card designs for the fair.       

Who are you hoping to see at the International Spring Fair?    

Appreciative people, and some who may like to stock some of my paintings! I’d also like to meet some potential clients who would like to use my designs for products of their own maybe?
