Spots & Stripes—Siberian Tiger


Lee Kromschroeder

Lee Kromschroeder has been creating worlds on canvas since he was four. Many of these early paintings reflected the interests of other children growing up in Southern California, the ocean before him, the mountains nearby and, of course, rocket ships. But these typical subjects were supplemented with something more. Kromschroeder's grandmother broadened his world by teaching him the finer skills of painting and sculpture and introducing him to the Masters through her library of books on the arts. Painting since those early days has fascinated Lee and has given him a sense of freedom. The support and encouragement of his grandmother and the rest of his family fostered a strong belief in himself and the significance of art. This proved ever useful with the rigors of training at San Francisco State University. Lee realizes now that he has dyslexia, but that did not prevent him from graduating with cum laude honors with a bachelor of fine arts degree. His formal education may be the foundation of his art, but developing his skills and studying his subjects continues to play a major role in his creations.
