comments from David Monkhouse, Curator The National Gallery of Canada From Lee Anne…”ART is my sanctuary, my quiet place where life’s calling becomes clear I have been working in acrylic and encaustic beeswax since 2007. After retiring from a thirty-year career in primary education, I have returned to my passion for creating art. I was privileged to study under the great Lila Lewis Irving, a student of Helen Frankenthahler. The New York School has had a great influence on my own style of nonrepresentational art. My work is an outward expression of my journey of faith. It is the embodiment of life, the visceral, raw and unspoken. I use color, blurred lines and hard edges to speak my truth. The process of constructing and deconstructing, the scaping back of layers exposing traces of what lies beneath gives my work soul. I hope that those who view my paintings will be able to identify with them on an emotional level. That would make me happy. I am inspired by the love of family and the joy of living the life I have been given. Every day is a precious gift. I am awed by the beauty I see in nature, from the early morning sunrise to the stillness and quiet of the evening.
