Cathy Lee is a professional full-time artist, specializing in oil painting. Since the age of 5, Lee has been heavily influenced by comic books, cartoons, graffiti art, and photography. As a Visual Arts B.A. graduate from the University of California, San Diego, Lee studied film and photography and immediately fell in love with film documentaries. In 2010, she launched her professional art business called, “Cathy Lee Art,” where she combines her accumulated skills and talents to create a visual experience on canvas. Lee hand mixes all of her paints from scratch, and builds her own stretched canvases. Through this process, she builds a deeper connection with each piece she creates.
