About Lee Vanderwalker:
The Detroit born artist, Lee Vanderwalker, now lives and breathes the vibrant culture of Belize, calling upon its history and aesthetic as a foundation for her art. The difficult medium of hand-painted silk, combined with her use of rich, smoldering colors, makes the work vibrate. Each culturally driven scene and image tells a story that is at once derived from the region and universal. Her depictions of village and island life, still-life's of flowers and window-framed seas, and dream-like figures, masks, and Mayan symbols, come to life with each fold of silk and each vivid texture. Her work is exotic yet comforting, enticing in the way that traveling is or getting lost in a familiar book. These deceptively simple works spring from the complexity of tradition and weave together the deep roots of artistic history.

In this world of velvety jungles begging to be explored and Caribbean legends hungry to be told, Vanderwalker's paintings allow the viewer to indulge in the distant adventure we all desire.

Congratulations, Lee! What wonderful news and you must be so excited!

One of my most favorite things is a picture you did of two beach chairs. I love the colors and it is usually the first thing I see each morning (unless the dog is sleeping on my head!) The exhibit will be a fantastic success. smile

I can never remember which is better . . . safe? . . . or sorry?
