Hi I'm Lee

I create artwork that captures the personality of your best friend with paws using expressive color and line work. I specialize in using mixed media to create unique portraits that are full of excitement and attitude. I’m an artist based in the Atlanta, Georgia area between the mountains and the city. (I grew up in Florida so they are mountains to me). I enjoy giving back to my local community by mentoring college students on color theory and creative thinking.

Expressive Dog Portraits

I'll capture the personality of your best friend with lively mixed media techniques.

Lasting Memories

I use archival materials on acid free paper and canvas.

Easy To Work With

I genuinely love animals and have been a professional creative with a track record for delivering great work on time.

Personal

I'll get to know you and your pet to create the most unique artwork.

Unique Artwork

The work I do is original and just for you.

Color Secrets: Brightness

There has been a trend lately in app design where white or very light backgrounds are paired with minimal use of color and flat, simplified shapes. Why this shift when sites had been trending darker and darker? Is it the Star Wars reboot? A renewed interest in futurism? Or are we just all […]
