Sara Lee


Sara Lee predominantly works with drawing and print, including woodblock in the ukiyo-e tradition. Her practice involves working from site-specific landscapes, followed by extended studio-based work. Her images are a response to the ephemeral nature of landscape and our profound relationship with it, especially at this time of ominous environmental change. She exhibits widely and her work is held in public and private collections internationally. Born in Wales in 1956, Sara Lee studied Fine Art at Ravensbourne and Print at Central School of Art. She lives and works in London.
