Bio

Lee Gilby b.1966

Lincolnshire based photographic abstractionist. 

Self taught photographer, developed craft through study and personal experimentation.

Began exhibiting in 2014 after encouragement from The Abbey walk Gallery team and an off-chance commission of my work for a record sleeve by an American Jazz Musician. I have since shown work in the UK, USA and Russia. Currently building a body of work to hopefully take forward to a solo exhibition in the near future.
