An interest in art started at NP Boys High School, then several years as a set designer for NP Little Theatre. Lester paints expressionist landscapes, mostly of his home province-Taranaki, and its mountain.
He aims to capture the mood and feelings of a place and give an idea of its character. He does not attempt to portray accurate detail.
The paintings are a combination of imagination and observations. They are not meant to be illustrational but an expression of what he sees and feels. Hoping for initial appeal to the viewer but also be able to retain interest after repeat viewings.
