Sleep artist creates masterpieces whilst not awake

An artist from North Wales who paints only when he is asleep now seems to have a global demand for his work.

Lee Hadwin, 36, from Denbigh has no artistic training, no natural sketching talent (during the day) and no inclination in waking life to be an artist.

Despite this he manages to draw and sketch portraits, figures and landscapes whilst asleep, with some of his masterpieces reportedly selling for up to six-figure sums.

According to Lee's Facebook page, he started drawing in his sleep when he was four but it was not until he was 15 that his nocturnal talent as an artist began to emerge.

During his late teens he would draw or scribble on walls, tables, clothes, discarded newspapers, but he now prepares before bedtime by leaving sketch books and materials scattered around his flat.

Lee claims he cannot draw when he is awake and he has never been to art college or studied the subject.
