Lee was born in Stockport in 1978 and grew up on the coast of North Wales. He spent a lot of his childhood on the docks of Port Penrhyn where his dad was a mechanic and some of his paintings are inspired from these memories. Lee moved to London at 21 to train as an actor and has since worked in feature films and commercials through to theatre. After studying A-Level art Lee has always painted and continues to do so around his work/family life. With two lively children and living in a bustling city, Lee is never short of inspiration for his painting as they are all about people going about their ordinary or not so ordinary lives.
