Aleshia Lonsdale is visual artist based in regional New South Wales. Lonsdale began as primarily a painter and weaver and has since expanded her practice to incorporate sculptural and installation work. Inspiration for her work is drawn from issues facing Aboriginal people including that of Aboriginality and Identity.
Using everyday objects and materials Aleshia creates works that reflect the cultural values and traditions of her people and works which challenge the audience and put the spotlight on contemporary issues of today.
Aleshia is also the Aboriginal Arts Development Officer at Arts Outwest.
