Jessie Lee

Jessie Lee was born in Malaysia and came to England as a student in the early 1970’s. She travelled widely and lived for several years in Saudi Arabia. She was trained in ceramics and worked as a potter and a sculptor, concentrating on figurative works.

In 1990 Jessie returned to college to study painting and drawing. She received new inspiration from the medium of printmaking, particularly monoprinting and collography. She finds the immediacy and spontaneity of this medium fresh and exciting, although her training in ceramics is still apparent in her use of different textures.

With her latest work she has moved away from figurative and towards more abstract images. Many of her prints contain echoes of her experiences; from her childhood in Malaysia, which has a particularly rich cultural and natural visual environment; from seven years spent in Saudi Arabia where she appreciated the textures and stillness of the desert landscape; from her travels in China and Outer Mongolia.
