Lee now lives in Oxfordshire but she was born in Trinidad; brought up in Bahrain, and “I have lived most of my life in other countries around the world.” Lee began painting at a very early age. She is inspired by the drama of brilliant tropical light; African wildlife; unusual perspectives, and scenes from her years in the Middle East and Africa. She is always striving to catch the intense feelings of heat, colour and beauty. Since moving to England some years ago Lee has exhibited with the Sycamore Gallery and on the Cotswold Art Exhibition, the Carterton Lions exhibition, mixed exhibitions in Woodstock and in Charlbury, and by invitation at a large prestigious exhibition in Shropshire. She is also an active member of Oxfordshire Art Weeks. Some of her paintings now hang in Canada, Eastern and Western USA, South Africa as well as the UK. Lee has also appeared in PORTFOLIO, a publication about the Dartington Hall School artists.
“I’m constantly striving to improve my technique and skills and am currently experimenting with local scenes and the English light, but find it really difficult to leave the tropics behind.”
