Jeni Lee has lived and traveled in the some of the most diverse landscapes of the West. From a childhood spent in the northern California coastal countryside, to Idaho’s river valleys, to finding her home among the forests of the Northwest and attending artist residencies in the unique landscapes of New Mexico, Vermont, Kauai, and Oregon’s high desert.

After receiving her degree in Painting and Drawing from Portland State University in 1999, Jeni quickly grew a loyal collector base, exhibiting her work at galleries and venues throughout the region. She has received recognition in the home decor trade for her top selling licensed designs, where her work can be found in healthcare, hospitality and residential collections nationwide.

Jeni Lee resides in Portland, Oregon where she works daily out of her colorful art studio, partnering wit clients, galleries and art consultants to place her work locally and beyond.

Her paintings and limited edition collections can be found at galleries in some of Oregon’s most unique spots, including the Oregon coast, the historic Sellwood neighborhood, and at regional events and art festivals throughout the year.

Studio visits and commission inquiries welcome.
