Born in England, Lesley Wynne Pechter grew up in Canada. She studied under Guido Molinari and Yves Gaucher at Concordia University in Montreal, where she received her BFA in Graphic Design. Her painting and prints have been exhibited in various galleries, and her design work has appeared in posters for the National Arts Centre, book illustrations and cd covers.

Currently living in Victoria BC in a grey clapboard house by the sea with her writer husband, Ed, Lesley finds family, grandchildren, friends, her garden and island weather a constant source of inspiration.
