Lee Fearnley

lee fearnleyLee Fearnley was born in Mirfield, West Yorkshire in 1969.

After studying at Batley College of Art he began his career in a design studio at a greeting card company before becoming a freelance artist and illustrator in 1995 with many clients both in the UK and abroad.

Fearnley’s work now hangs in private collections across the world.

I have a deep love of painting figures and to be able to combine that with another passion of mine in sport, is extremely enjoyable, particularly in vintage scenes as they aren’t tainted with the modern day commercialism that most sports have today. The unprofessional naivety of vintage sport is not only visually more appealling to me, but it lends itself to a more stylised, humorous type of figure.
