Lee Edwards

Lee Edwards, a resident of Duarte, California, has established a reputation as a plein air impressionist artist. His paintings are regularly exhibited in gallery shows on the west coast and are in private collections throughout the United States.

Formal art studies began at the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1969 where Lee was an assistant to the British painter Malcolm Morley who was artist in residence. Art studies continued at the Dayton Art Institute in Ohio where he took daily studio classes in life drawing, sculpture and painting. The B.A. degree in fine art was completed at La Sierra University in Riverside, California in 1972 where he presented his first one man show of paintings. He went on to earn an M.F.A. degree in Cinema at USC in 1974.

Lee began his professional life as a film and video editor, creating award-winning films for broadcast television. Around 2007 he returned to the traditional art mediums of drawing and painting, working primarily in landscape. Further art training included workshops with established artists Kathleen Dunphy, Brian Blood, Jim Wodark, Ray Roberts, and John Cosby.

In 2008 Lee exhibited a one-man show of landscape oil paintings at the Claremont Forum Gallery in Claremont, California. His paintings have been exhibited in juried shows at the Huntington Library and Museum Botanical Center, the Oil Painters of America National Exhibition and the OPA Western Regional Exhibition, the Long Beach Art Museum, the California Art Club, the Joshua Tree National Park
Art Exhibitions and the Hillside Fine Art Gallery in Claremont, California..
