about Jen Lee
Fine Artist and Website Designer
I've been an artist most of my life, growing up in beautiful Marin County, California. It was there that I was introduced to my lifelong passion of pencil portraiture. A person's eyes reveal the genuine core of their character that I love to capture in my portraits.
My artistic journey soon brought me to Photoshop, and I became thrilled by what I could create with a digital pencil. This opened to me a career in photo editing and restoration, website design, and more. Regardless of whether I hold a pencil or a stylus in my hand, my real love is capturing the essence of a person that my clients can enjoy for decades to come.
I later relocated to upstate New York, where I learned oil painting. I quickly fell in love with just how buttery and rich oil paint could be. Years later I began working with people in the art world to bring their 2D art into the digital world, and for years collaborated with artists adding digital art to the original art. While I enjoyed all of this, I really missed the intimacy of fine art. So I left the business world to become a full-time professional artist. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Now, with my family, I live on the stunning and, inspiring coast of the Pacific Northwest. I enjoy quiet time in my studio painting, drawing pencil portraits, and digital art for clients.
