She taught in the textile arts program at Capilano University, Vancouver, Canada to 2003 while continuing her practice as a studio artist. Lesley now works full time in her studio.

Korea and SOFA Chicago & New York 2011/12, The 12th International Triennial of Tapestry 2007, Lodz, Poland. Her work is featured in: Textiles - The Art of Mankind, Mary Schoeser, Thames & Hudson; Vol. 40 of the The Portfolio Collection and Art Textiles of the World - Canada, by Telos Art Publishing, UK. Lesley is inspired by the architectural elegance of trees; tranquil and timeless. Trees are an important symbol in many cultures. They are used in myths and legends and are generally a revered image. Their long lives allow them to watch over many changes in history. There is a change in atmosphere as one enters a forest, which could give a feeling of a sanctuary or convey a sense of unease. Forests have been used as a setting for countless magical stories. Lesley photographs trees, focusing on the intricacy of their branching structures and then prints these images on cloth, using a medium that creates a dimensional surface. She then eliminates selected background areas, leaving the structural images of trees as the dominant feature. The images are then painted with metal patinas and pigments.
