paintings & portraiture


Minae Lee is a painter specializing in portraiture.

Born in Seoul, South Korea, she has long made her home in the Cascadian region of the United States. She is fascinated by the unique nature of each human face: not only inherited features, but the lines, expressions, and character that accumulate through lived experience.

In previous lives, she has been: an antiquarian book dealer, a student of philosophy and linguistics, a virtual deity, and a software engineer.

She is currently also: a lover of the wild places, an amateur Go player, and co-owner of Conflux, an experimental open multimedia studio.

All works are acrylic on canvas.
