New Paintings

Tanya Hayes Lee

Tanya Hayes Lee is a visual artist who works primarily in oil on canvas to depict landscpes - those that do exist and those that should - in a modern Impressionist style. Her greatest inspirations include the nineteenth-century painters George Innes, J.M.W. Turner, and John Constable. Contemporary artists from whom she has learned her craft include Douglas Fryer and Charlie Hunter and many many colleagues in and around Cambridge. 

"My landscapes and seascapes are representative of places and states of mind I need to inhabit. My love of the sea goes back to my childhood on Cape Ann in Massachusetts and many of my paintings of sea and sky are based on those memories as much as on current trips to shores and oceans as far afield as I can find the wherewithal to visit."

Lee studied studio art at the Mass College of Art, Scottsdale Artist School, and Northern Arizona University. She lives and works in Cambridge and exhibirts at the Rockport Art Association and Museum, Cambridge Art Association, Concord Art Associateion and Cambridge Open Studios, as well as sundry nontraditional venues.
