Michelle Lee’s main passions since childhood have been art and animals. She’s a recent addition to Sutter Creek Gallery where she will be the featured artist for September. Lee participated in formal art classes for sketching, painting, ceramics, and sculpting from grade school through her time at Rutgers University where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology.
While traveling internationally, photography became the solution to capturing the natural beauty around her. Wildlife came into focus for her as she experimented with and taught herself basic photography. Since getting settled in the extraordinary foothills of the Sierras in 2013, Lee has expanded her art to include portrait and sports photography and, most recently, mixed media work on a variety of backgrounds including aluminum.
