First Name Lee
Last Name Claremont
Country Canada
Lee Claremont was born in Woodstock, Ontario. She is of Mohawk/Irish ancestry and is a member of the Grand River Iroquois Six Nations in Oshweken, Ontario. Lee received her BFA (Honours) from the University of British Columbia and now resides in the beautiful Okanagan Valley in BC.

Lee has a strong commitment, enthusiasm and passion for her community, family and friends. She recently won an ‘ANGEL AWARD’ for the “largest individual creative contribution in the visual arts in the Okanagan Valley.” She is a well-respected instructor at the En’Owkin Centre, an internationally recognized Aboriginal Educational College. Lee is in great demand to mentor and facilitate workshops throughout the province.

In the last few years Lee has become a muralist to add to her many talents. In 2004 she was asked to create a 23’x12’ mural at the Art Gallery of the South Okanagan to honour one of her own heroes, Norval Morrisseau, for an exhibition called “Young Spirits Rising” at which Norval Morrisseau attended. Recently Lee painted another mural “Digging Deep from Memory” at the Kelowna Art Gallery.

She is well known for her incredible use of colour and her very distinct and recognizable palette is a rainbow that showers us with a positive sense of emotional energy and healing. Lee thinks that humour is also a great healer and in many of her paintings you can find a sense of playfulness that brings a smile to one’s face.
Acrylic is a popular and versatile painting medium, using pigments dispersed in a polymethyl methacrylate vehicle. Acrylic paintings are generally less translucent than oil paintings.
