"A field of dogs, mellow from the day's activities," describes artist Lee Smith. "But there is always one who has yet another idea for making mischief." Tall grasses provide comfort for dogs to lay and nap. In the midst of this warm huddle is one dog with eyes wide open and a wicked smile. Part of Lee's series on animals with human emotions. She combines rich, intense colors, along with textural surfaces to create good-natured, tongue-in-cheek portrayals of man's best friends.

Lee Smith

FOREST GROVE, Oregon

Artist Lee Smith combines abstract, primitive, expressionist, and gritty contemporary art in her work. “My style is greatly influenced by years spent in CGI production and an unapologetic love for the daily comics,” says Lee. As a keen observer, she finds her inspiration in the social aspects of life. Her work represents human emotions and portrays these emotions by illustrating the animal world, often using those popular companions—cats and dogs. In her long professional career, Lee has worked as a newspaper layout artist, a visual merchandising specialist, a freelance graphic artist, a technical illustrator, and an art director. Lee retired from the corporate world ten years ago to concentrate on her art career. “Although I studied art in college, I prefer to describe myself as 'self-taught.' Years of irreplaceable hands-on experience have provided an extensive and invaluable continuing education in the arts,” says Lee. When building her current home in Oregon, she added a small studio that she keeps organized and clutter-free. She wears her trusty paint-covered denim overall when working, and typically listens to audiobooks or podcasts. “I have dozens of paintbrushes in cans all over the studio, but I have only about 10 favorites that I always use.”
