Artwork

Artist Lee Smith depicts a curious white dog with bright turquoise eyes posing against a yellow inner-city backdrop. Violet highlights outline his body above thick black strokes. With varying methods, Lee develops her striking animal paintings by incorporating different mediums. Her technique includes scraping, dry-brushing, and blending as she builds up layers of interest. It results in bold captivating pieces with rich colors and strong contrasts.

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.”
