“Most of my work is from my imagination, childhood memories or people I have seen in a world that sometimes seems to border on farce.” Say’s Lee McConville. Exploring the darker side of fairy tales and circus memories McConville is an automatic painter. “What I paint is instinctive and depends on my mood. I never do any preliminary sketches or drawings, I find that my initial excitement is lost if I don't jump straight in and paint.” she says. Specialising in acrylic, watercolour and mixed media, McConville finds that the water based mediums suit her organic and immediate pace.
