Dawn Lee has lived and worked on Long Island since 1990. She is from Colorado where she received her BFA from Colorado State University in printmaking, and moved to Brooklyn, New York to study painting at Pratt Institute of Art. Later she completed her MFA in painting at Long Island University. Ms. Lee is Chair of the Art Department at St. Joseph's College, and teaches drawing, painting, design, and crafts as an art form. She has lead several travel abroad art courses to Italy, France, Spain, and Greece. She is also Artist-in-Residence Coordinator for Fire Island National Seashore and an independent curator.
Being an avid lover of the outdoors, nature is the inspiration for her paintings, drawings, and paper works. Much of her current work focuses on eco-diversity and is based on her experiences in wild and protected lands such as Rocky Mountain National Park, the Arctic Wildlife Refuge, and the Otis Pike Wilderness Area on Fire Island. Her work has been exhibited internationally, nationally and throughout the New York area.
