~ Les Jason Spence ~
Les Jason Spence (1934/5 – ?) was born in Cheshire and spent his early years growing up in Yorkshire.
In 1965 at the age of 31, he gave up his job to devote his time to painting. He had trained and practised as a lettering artist, gilder and interior designer
whilst in his spare time developing the painting style which, as it matured, has made the craftsman also an artist.
In 1971 Les and his family moved to Cornwall and over the years his reputation as a leading artist continually flourished. He ran his own gallery in
Padstow, Cornwall during the 1980’s before concentrating on painting full time.
His many exhibitions include The Royal Society of Marine Artists, The Royal Society of British Artists and had one-man shows throughout Britain. His
commissions include The Royal Norwegian Navy, The Royal Marines, The Readers Digest and Westward Television.
