For many years Canberra based artist, Lesley Andersen has run a successful screen printing partnership specialising in Canberra themed textiles. Her pieces are represented in gallery and retail shops in both the ACT and Victoria. To further expand her practice, Lesley studied at the Canberra Institute of Technology exploring other forms of printing, digital design, sculpture and painting. In 2019, Lesley created ‘Mirror Bus’ as part of the Orange Wolves festival in central Civic. Led by Lesley, a team of Visual Arts students transformed a decommissioned bus into a sparkling, light-catching and kinetic sculpture recycling 5000 discarded CDs in the process. The project highlighted the environmental impact on the endangered Bogong Moth attracting both media and public attention. Lesley’s next project was dictated by pressing environmental needs. She and a team of women designed and made pouches for wildlife orphaned by bushfires and created face masks for frontline health workers fighting COVID19.
