Les Burgess

Fine Artist
Studio 1

In my very early days I trained in graphic arts and design. I joined the Advertising industry and worked in many agencies in London UK and the North of England most of my adult life. I started out as a graphic designer leading to Art Director and finally to Creative Director and Ad Agency owner. In my latter years in the Ad Industry including Canada, most of my time turned to building clients, marketing and sales and growing the business before finally retiring.

I could always draw, design and create but, only started painting in acrylics on canvas in my latter retirement years. Mostly to date working on general interest landscapes. I treat every painting as a challenge and always try to create some extra interest in my scenes by introducing some added impact and attention for the viewer.
