in Ipswich in 1957, Lee studied at Bath Academy of Art. Lee has travelled extensively
in the Far East where she studied calligraphy and Taoist brush painting. Such
influences are apparent in her elegant and specific mark making which gives
her work a distinctive and original style. Her awareness in the use of colour
means that she takes a great deal of care mixing her own inks by hand which
may take days of preparation.
The monoprinting technique, although very time consuming, produces the richness
and luminosity of colour that makes her prints so special. The ink is painted
onto each plate individually.
