Born in Kempsey, New South Wales in 1942, landscape artist, Les Graham studied in nearby Lismore, and at the Julian Ashton School in Sydney, but is mainly self taught. After moving to Sydney he worked closely with artist Doug Sealy for several years in country New South Wales, which improved both their styles. He has had several one-man exhibitions in the eastern states and has his own gallery in Kempsey, New South Wales.
