Google her, she's Scottish bourgeouis I bet she's got an AGA and a husband in The City (Edinburgh).
I grew up in a fairly remote village in Highland Perthshire. My father, the wildlife artist Roger Lee, worked from the family home and so I was always surrounded by art and the business of art. After a local schooling, I went to University of St Andrews where I read English, graduating in 1997 with M.A. Honours. This was followed by a series of sales and marketing jobs throughout my twenties, in pharmaceuticals, energy, cars and local radio. I returned to settle in Highland Perthshire in 2003 and now live in Blair Atholl with my husband and four children.
Starting a family also inspired me to start painting, through a desire to make lasting records of family life. I was also hoping to make a bit of extra cash around my main duty: bringing up small children! A fascination for characterisation in the course of my previous literary studies led me quite naturally to portraiture as a genre. The process of painting a portrait almost always engages me in collaboration with people, making it less solitary than most other visual art-forms - and this is something I enjoy. Although I now paint landscapes, animals and even the occasional building, my approach is always rooted in portraiture.
Portraits are generally self-explanatory and most people feel far more confident when asked for their opinion on a portrait than, for instance, an abstract work. I subscribe to what I believe is a common consensus on the main criterion for a successful portrait: achieving a good likeness.
It is of the greatest importance to me that my work has the physical integrity to last the course of time; as such, I place utmost priority on quality of materials, craftsmanship and attention to detail. My dearest hope for any of my paintings is that they are treasured by those who come to own them.
