LEE ESSEX DOYLE
Influenced by her extensive travels through India and Africa, Lee Essex Doyle’s exquisite sense of color and rhythm present a vision. Her mastery of color brings to mind the exquisite sunlit interiors and gardens of Bonnard. She paints interiors and landscapes, studying the details, layering patterns, textures and colors. These paintings are not just evidence of a mature artist in full control of her craft, but a joyful experience as well.
"My work is drawn directly from life and then I move it into my studio, where the art of memory seeps in, along with all of its emotions. It is this relationship that interests me most: the relationship between what is seen and what is felt and remembered.”
