Originally from central Indiana and after an 11 year stint in New Hampshire,
Lee Ann now makes her home in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
When she was home with young children, she taught piano lessons and took up
watercolor painting, primarily because she was too poor to buy other people's art,
and also because the creative outlet diverted her from the intense desire to duct tape
her children to the wall. All manner of ruckus is easier to cope with when you have
an outlet. Or duct tape.
After covering a coffee table with basic tile from Home Depot, she stood back and
said "Well, that's lovely, but what if...." Thousands of pounds of glass and stone later,
she has a backache but also has the honor of having been juried into international
exhibits from Ontario, Canada to Charlotte, North Carolina - Somerville, Massachusetts
to Long Beach, California. Her work is currently available at Kalled Gallery
in Wolfeboro, NH (chosen as Editor's Pick for “Must See” destinations in Yankee Magazine). She was twice honored with an invitation to the Contemporary Mosaic Art Summit exhibit at Southern Oregon University's Thorndike Gallery in Ashland, Oregon, 2015 and 2016.
