Ness Lee’s work is an investigation of the human form dealing with notions of intimacy and self-love. Using various media, including ceramics, drawing, painting and mixed media sculpture, she explores and echoes these emotions, encompassing their tactile experiences into one that is filled with a depth of feeling, playing on humourous rhythms and self-exploration. Lee graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design with a Bachelors of Design in illustration, and is now based in Toronto. She has exhibited her works at galleries in Toronto, New York, Boston and Tokyo, and her illustrations have been selected for award publications such as American Illustration 35 and The Society of Illustrators 57.
