Lesley Saddington lives and works in London as an artist and illustrator. Her preferred medium is collage. The careful construction of shape, texture and colour lends her work a decorative quality. Saddington cites the set and costume design of theatre, in particular the Ballet Russes, as a key influence on her work. She also refers to Marc Chagall, stating: 'I like to have a feeling of movement and flow in my work, which is why I love the flying figures in Chagall's paintings.' Saddington has received a wide range of commissions from clients including The Times, British Airways and BBC Publications.
