About

Best known for his iconic shamanistic images, Lawrence W. Lee has been a professional artist for over forty years.  His work is in thousands of private collections around the world as well as in the permanent collections of noted corporations and museums.  Born in 1947, he has lived in Tucson, Arizona for much of his life, though he has also lived in the Guatemalan highlands and on a Caribbean island.  He has written several books and has had poetry published in both national and international journals.  In 2016 he collaborated with Ballet Tucson to create “Spirit Garden,” based on the traditions of Dia de Los Muertos. Since returning to studio work after a brief retirement, he has begun to mix fearlessness with experience in an attempt to imbue his figures with yet more power, and-- after a hiatus of some fifty years--he has again started to paint strikingly unique landscapes, abstracts, and non-objective works.  

"I have made a good living as a professional artist for almost fifty years. I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain. I have known love and loss in near equal measure. I am interested in almost everything, but have special fondness for language and subatomic physics. I continue to paint."
