Lee’s oil paintings are abstractions from nature, evolving into exercises on the nature of abstraction.
From observations of the interaction of light and shade on leaves, her preoccupation with space, form and ambivalent light sources results in works that are both atmospheric and structured.
She is striving for an expressive, organised aesthetic, a kind of “emotional geometry”.
A life-long painter, Lee graduated with a Degree in Fine Art Painting from the South Australian School of Art in 1976 (with Distinction). She spent nearly 30 years in rural Portugal, working in isolation.
It is only now that she is settled in SE Cornwall that she is starting to show her work.
She has rapidly established an international client base, had a major solo show in 2018, exhibits both in UK and Europe and is shown regularly in corporate venues.
