Sunglee Lee

(American, born 1947)

California-based artist Sunglee Lee creates paintings of the desert landscape. Born in Korea, she moved to the United States in 1974. She notes, "Art for me is a vital expression of individual and collective life. Like a language, art is charged with symbolic and emotional meanings which arise out of the creative potential of the individual within a particular social environment, but which also share common threads with diverse cultures."
