All work : Gordon Lees [Biography]

Gordon Lees

Gordon Lees

Gordon Lees was born in Birmingham, England in 1933. Lees is a self-taught artist who came late to full-time painting, having first had careers in the RAF, industry, mining, commerce and, finally, in plastics design where he was a successful industrial stylist. Throughout these years, Gordon Lees painted and exhibited in what spare time he had. By the mid-seventies, the demand for work by Gordon was such that he decided to become what he had always wanted to be - a full-time artist.

Gordon Lees' delicate style and attention to detail enable him to create the feel and atmosphere of the English countryside and also to reflect the traditional values of a rural England now so sadly missed. Gordon lives in the West Country where he can draw much inspiration for his nostalgic scenes.

Gordon Lees' paintings have been exhibited at the Mall Galleries in London, the Home Counties and many leading galleries throughout the UK, America and Japan.
