Helping with cattle drives, attending brandings and generally living life out West has provided inspiration for the western themes in Laurie J. Lee’s art. But it was growing up with an artistic mother that provided Laurie with opportunities to explore being an artist and develop what would become her passion and future career. Laurie’s work has been featured in numerous western art and equine magazines and has shown her work in several nationally recognized art shows in California, Montana and Wyoming including the prestigious C. M. Russell Art Museum’s Western Art Auction in Great Falls, Montana, and the National Wildlife Museum's Western Visions Show in Jackson, Wyoming.
