IN THE BEGINNING…
She pursued a degree in Fine Art and business. Upon graduating, settled in a small Midwest community.
With a focus on children’s art, she worked with the local park department led her to cofound a Summer Art Camp for children, impacting hundreds of young creatives.
ART CAN TAKE YOU PLACES
Her love of music grew as she volunteered to do some marketing for a community orchestra. This led to a part-time job in administration and later as the executive director. While she enjoyed this work, it was on vacation that she could grow as an artist.
She found masterclasses that were wonderful retreats that tapped into her creativity and most importantly, cleared her head. With each class, she became more inspired to go back to her dream of being a full-time artist.
REALIZING THAT TIME IS PRECIOUS . . .
she enjoys creating and experimenting in paint. It’s an organic life where Lee is open to opportunities. From commissions to gallery shows to festivals, Lee enjoys it all.
A partnership began in 2017 called Rubato Fashion. Lee and a talented seamstress began to make a variety of hand-painted wearable art. Her artistry is also represented by handmade scarves, accessories and home décor items.
In 2019, she took a class with Kellie Day to go on a journey to express her emotions through mixed media paintings. It was at this masterclass that, she began to combine her acquired skills as a graphic artist and photographer with paint and new mediums to create Fine Art pieces that are saturated in emotion. It inspired a huge release of creativity that has affected the entire way that she approaches art now.
Currently, Lee’s work can be found at solo exhibitions, art festivals, FineArtAmerica.com, ShopVida.com and collaborative events in the Midwest.
My work is expressive with color and emotion to touch the hearts of others and brighten the world.
