Christine Lester S.O.F.A.

Christine Lester - Mr and Mrs Clark's Cat

I have always been most attracted to drawing and painting people and animals and so, when I had my own feline subjects, it was a natural decision to join SOFA.

The high standard of work at the SOFA annual London exhibition keeps me on my toes and encourages me to experiment with new styles and mediums, whilst focusing on the same fascinating subject! Although my main commissions are for portraiture (people and animals), I haven’t limited myself to painting portraits as I teach painting to adults and their needs take my painting interests far and wide. As well as producing work for local and national exhibitions, this year I’m starting a new venture at Pin Mill in Suffolk, running painting days in a beautiful location and planning to incorporate animal painting days at a lovely new studio there later in the year.
