Yena Lee


I grew up making art and playing music in sunny Southern California. When I went off to the small free-spirited town of Northampton, Massachusetts to attend Smith College, it was there that I found my inspiration and discovered my love for printmaking, letterpress, and the beauty of simplicity.

I am continually exploring and evolving my artistic vision, and am inspired by the everyday things in my life:
Family stories
The handmade
Road trips and neighborhood strolls
Textures and tactile experiences
Silly things

I believe that we are always exploring and always evolving. I believe in the imperfect human experience and that every adventure, good or bad, is essential in shaping your values and who you are.

I also play viola with Paulie Pesh and have recorded several CDs, including "Shining Stars EP," "Post Mortem," and "Alas, The Visiting Ghost" (to be released soon).
