Artist's Profile

photo - 2022

Lesley White (nee Milne) resides and works from her home studio in Prince George, BC, Canada.  She has been painting in oils for 30 years, recording the life of the Western cowboy.

Her rural beginnings connect her to the core of this lifestyle and although life's path took her on an urban journey for a time, the feel, smell, and vision of ranching was always with her. It was those senses that eventually pulled her back to her roots.

Lesley holds a deep respect and admiration for people who have chosen this tough but rewarding way of life and hopes that she can contribute to its preservation by eternalizing it through her work as a visual artist.

Lesley's work has been juried into several national and international exhibitions including the American Academy of Equine Art; The Phippen Museum; CM Russell Museum; Mountain Oyster Club; Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art; Calgary Stampede; Ducks Unlimited National Art Portfolio and was one of four artists chosen for their 2017 Legacy Collection.  In 2022 she was awarded Signature Status (SFCA) with the Federation of Canadian Artists and is a member of the Central Interior Chapter of the Federation.
