Artist Biography:
Born in Kingston, Jamaica, April 12, 1964. The first of nine children for Mr. and Mrs. Noel Lee. I've had a flair for the fine arts from my early childhood years. I recall that while attending White Marl All Age School in St. Catherine. My artistic abilities were acknowledged and exposed by teachers, students and members of my family. In 1976, I went to Tivoli Garden Comprehensive High School where I was privileged to be taught art by a renown Jamaican artist, the late Ralph Campbell O.D. While in grade 9, I placed third in an inter-school art competition and was also successful in the Cambridge G.C.E.O levels art examination. I later went to Excelsior Community College, Micro Teacher College where I majored in art. At this school, three successful exhibitions was a requirement. It was during my second year exhibition in 1986 that two of my textile works were selected for the Marcus Garvy's Centenary by Dr. Ina Becksford and Professor Karl "Jerry" Craig. It was a pleasure to have Mr. Burchell Duhaney as on of my art tutors at EXED and Mico. In July 1998 and 1999, I participated in workshops at the Edna Manley School of Visual Arts in association with the ministry of education doing drawing and painting respectively. I participated in Jamaica Cultural Development Commission National Fine Arts Competition for the first time in 1984, in the painting category and again in 1998. I've been teaching art at Pembroke Hall Comprehensive High School since 1987. I intend to continue a career in art and as an art educator making vital contributions to my community, my country and the world at large. I will always love and do art.
