Meet our Members: Lucille Lee

Get to know the folks that make up the Arts Council's vibrant member family! in this edition, you'll meet lucille lee.

How did you become an artist? 
I grew up with an art background as my dad is a landscape artist. When I was 5, I learned different painting skills from him. He is my mentor for my art career. I love to visit museums, shows, and exhibitions to get inspired. Art is my passion, indeed. 

What inspires you to make art?
Traveling through an art museum is my biggest hobby, inspiring me during my art-making process. 

If you hadn’t become an artist, what else might you have done?
If I hadn’t gotten a chance to become an artist, I would be a ballet dancer because I paint ballerinas, and I identify myself as a ballerina artist. Ballet dancing painting is a signature of my style.

What’s inspiring you these days?
New York City Ballet, one of the performing art dance companies, inspires me hugely these days. I always bring my family to the show and watch their performances, which allows me to capture all these beautiful dancing moments in my paintings.

What’s one thing about you people would be surprised to know?
I paint ballet dance, but I’m not a dancer. Maybe one day, I wish I could give it a shot. However, I’m very into ballerinas, aiming to capture their aesthetics in my paintings. I also hope everyone will sense the uniqueness and elegance of my art.
