Claire Lee is a poet and visual artist working in a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, poetry and mixed media. She lives and works in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom.
Her works draw on subjects dealing with psychological struggles and personal strength, and she offers in her poems and artworks a vision of a world of contrasts. The drawings, paintings and photographs explore how our souls might express a spiritual strength and purity in times of pain.
Since her first exhibition in Hong Kong in 2009, Lee has held various solo exhibitions in galleries and art spaces throughout the city, including the Fringe Club, New Gallery on Old Bailey and Mur Nomade. Her works have also been featured in museum exhibitions in Japan and the United States.
