Paulette Lee works from her studio on Route 66 in South Pasadena, California. Her loose, expressive painting style is influenced by the Russian Masters of the 19th and 20th Century. Much of her inspiration is drawn from painting excursions at home and abroad. SouthwestArt Magazine featured her artistic impressions of the historic U.S. Route 66 in the April 2003 issue and selected her as an "artist to collect" in October 2004. She was honored as an Artist in Residence at the internationally renowned Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010. In 2008 she received the Award of Excellence at the Oil Painters of America 17th Annual National Exhibition of Traditional Oils. Museum exhibitions include the Bennington Center for the Arts (Vermont) and in California, the Pasadena Museum of History and Pasadena Museum of California Art.
