Jodi Lee is an incredible artist on her way to great things, and we are incredibly lucky to have her as a part of our 2019 holiday show. Keep reading to learn a bit more about her and her work.

Jodi, where did it all begin?

At 17, I stood in front of an Alberto Giacometti painting and felt like I was seeing art for the first time. Tears streamed down my face, and I fell deeply in love with expression through line and brush.

I still have the Giacometti print that I bought at 17 years old hanging in my house 23 years later.

I paint because art breaths inside me, wakes me up, drives me forward. It is a passion and a feud.

A problem to solve that I don’t want to know the answer to.

What is your favorite snack?

A cup of ice and a diet dr pepper, chocolate chip cookie, and Macklemore will start just about every painting session off nicely.

Where is your studio?

I get to have my studio in my home. My easel rests in a corner by a big window that looks out to my tree-filled backyard.


What materials do you paint with?

I work mostly in oils right now. I love ink and watercolor too.


Do you use a sketchbook?

Sketching every day is not negotiable. Inspiration and skill must find me working.

Who is your biggest fan?

My husband is by far my biggest supporter.  The best critiques of my work have come from my 3 kids who see in unique and insightful ways.
