Artist Jeremy Lee –
Portrait Drawings – Commissioned portrait sketches and personal artworks by Jeremy Lee.
Jeremy Lee, a Canadian, currently living in Australia. Jeremy has been drawing and painting for as long as he can remember. Jeremy grew up in various parts of England including the picturesque Cotswolds. He picked up a camera before 10 years old, and distinctly remembers starting his first significant artwork at the age of six.
Fascinated by color, Jeremy spent many long nights and evenings learning the physics. It seems easy at first to explain why something is ‘red’ or ‘green’ but the more you look into it, the harder it becomes. As it happens, the study of color leads you deep into quantum physics. This created an interest in electronics and he built an electronic organ at age 14. Around the same age, he sold many picture-sculptures to friends and family. While still at school, he created glass engravings and distributed them as wedding presents and sold them. He worked for several years as an assistant at Winchcombe Pottery run by Ray Finch. At the end of his tenure, Ray offered Jeremy an apprenticeship. At a crossroads in life, with opportunities as a full time potter or to pursue the Olympics as a gymnast, Jeremy decided that a long term career would be best served pursuing his love of science.
Jeremy now has a degree in electronics and is a certified internet security professional. This is what pays the bills and looks after his dependents and a large pole house that he built by hand over the last sixteen years; but his wife, children then art craft, and working with wood and generally “making things” takes the most prominent place in his life.
