Born and raised in the suburbs of New York City the artist behind LeeC designs enjoyed frequent trips to Manhattan, the artistic capital of the world. Inspired by her late grandfather, who still has his artwork exhibited in The Statue of Liberty Museum, she would often peruse the artistic wonders of New York City for inspiration.
Through a childhood hobby of crafting and designing a gifted artist was born, with later professional training at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. Using a variety of mediums, shapes, and techniques she mastered the fundamentals of color, lighting, the use of positive and negative space, along with an eye for timelessness.
Her style reflects depth and beauty in a classic manner with fashion forward expression. As she paints with her preferred medium of acrylics, she carefully uses bold contrasting colors, integrated with trendy elements & metallic accents to grab the attention of all who view them.
Professionally, she has directed a team of designers to create artwork that is used by top brand retailers worldwide. She has a particular expertise interpreting artwork and generating coordinating patterns & design layouts to create marketable items for her clientele.
