LEE CAT

The restlessness of the human heart has always fascinated me. As a little olive, frizzy haired girl growing up in the Bronx, I was always restless. This feeling eventually led me to art. It was the only place I could feel relief and feel free.

 

As an artist and resident of New York City, my work strives to express life: the struggle, survival, and hope of it all. It strives to inspire love and courage above all things.

 

In terms of my work these days, I find myself captivated by lines. It is amazing what they are able to communicate. I find myself aiming to bring lines to life. Curving, bending, and making lines straight: making them happy then frustrating them with an interception of sorts, this has been my fixation. I seek to make them speak and breathe. Lines are my latest tools for communication.
