Hi I’m Lee.
I create artwork that captures the personality of your best friend with paws using expressive color and line work.
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.
For the past twelve years I’ve worked in the tech industry as a web and graphic designer but I’ve never stopped creating. I keep post-it notes in my purse and an artist go bag in my trunk to create on the go.
Currently I’m working on a series of paintings inspired by pets I know personally. These are mixed media portraits using watercolor, charcoal, acrylics and chalk pastels on paper and canvas. I love the expressive qualities of layering these different types of media together to create unique and unexpected effects. Each piece is different and original partly because of this.
Traveling and exploring the outdoors is a great source of inspiration for me. I’ve lived in the southeastern United States my whole life, but I’ve been lucky enough to travel to Europe and two different parts of the Grand Canyon here in the states. I recently traveled out west with the family to see the area around Yellowstone National Park. What I enjoy most about traveling is seeing life from a different perspective.
If you are curious about my work or have questions about painting or drawing I’d love to hear from you.
