Lee Ann says; “Landscape is a recurring theme in my prints. There are days when the lure of nature beckons me out of the studio. A rendezvous begins in the merging and interactions of the unexpected forces found in nature–when landscape elements compose before me in their collision of undulating patterns and textures. I prefer drawing on site and other times photographing. Through renderings the image gradually evolves capturing a fleeting moment.”
