About The Artist
As a nationally recognized artist, Janet Lee has her work in many homes and businesses. Providing commissioned art for the past 20 years in a wide range of disciplines, she is able to attain a high level of realism.
In her portrait work, the images seem to live and breathe as she brings their life's presence to the canvas. She works from reference photographs her clients provide, and works in various mediums and sizes.
In her murals she introduces art on a grand scale as a place to travel within and she sets a chosen mood and atmosphere that can take you to another dimension. When using the trompe l'oeil style, (to trick the eye) Janet's work will have you looking twice to see if it is really a painting -- or the real thing. She has had her mural work published in Better Homes & Garden's special interest publication "Windows and Walls."
With architectural illustration, Janet works along side architects to translate the technical aspect of their design projects into a visual picture for their clients. She has works incorporated into permanent hands-on exhibits in educational museum settings that cover a wide range exhibits in several states. She also produces renderings of homes for individuals.
The artist communicates what her client needs to say into visual statements with her graphics and logo designs, whether she provides corporate identity and packaging on a grand scale, or designs a simple business card project.
Janet is a roster artist with the Oklahoma Arts Council, as well as The Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Through her teaching in the artist-in-residence grant programs, and her city's artist-in-the-schools program, she has taught all levels of public schools and specializes in teaching at-risk teens; both in alternative schools and juvenile detention centers. In her 12 years as a roster artist, she has taught over 20,000+ students in various cities and towns in Oklahoma. She also gives workshops to teachers and other professional art instructors.
Soon Janet will add additional fields of art to this site, please bookmark this site and visit again. She will soon offer online workshops, and although it will be a separate art-instruction website, there will be a link displayed on this site.
