Artist based in Atlanta, Georgia
Hi I’m Lee.
I’ve been painting and drawing my whole life. 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. I work in a loose and vibrant style to try and capture the emotional qualities and personality of my subjects.
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.
Here is one of my recent works:
Traveling and exploring nature 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.
