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.
