Lesley Anne Numbers is a printmaker, illustrator, and art educator based in Madison, Wisconsin.
Currently, I teach screen printing at The Center for Printing Arts at Madison College, play around at Polka! Press, Madison's printmaking cooperative, and create prints for people and organizations I love. You may also find me teaching workshops at the library and selling my printed goods at craft shows. I previously sold my work under the name Patchwork Printshop.
With a background in art education and a lifelong love for old objects and the outdoors, I find inspiration in children’s artwork, vintage textiles and illustrations, and all of the beautiful forms, colors, and patterns found in nature. Other sources of inspiration include: music, poetry, motherhood, food, the sky, humanity. Interested in commissioning a print or collaborating on a project? Feel free to email me at email@example.com.
