Lee Beaton

Paints and Pastels

Lee's art training includes intensive drawing with pastel, charcoal & coloured pencils, watercolour & acrylic painting, portraiture and image transfer. She is currently enrolled in the BFA program at Brandon University.  Group exhibitions include Portage & District Arts Centre, The Piano Nobile Gallery, Golden Prairie Arts Council and Cre8ery Gallery. Lee has organized artist events in Island Park, the Free Art Show in Morden and the Meshing Creative Diversity Art Show in Portage la Prairie. Working out of her home studio, Lee also teaches classes at PDAC. She worked on the Canada 150 Mural, as well as an ArtsSmarts project with the Portage Ukrainian Nursery School, and participated in RAMP-Central 2014 with mentor, Barb Flemington.

Current projects include a solo exhibition at PDAC, July 18 to August 26, with the opening reception on July 20. The exhibition titled, "1000 Faces Hidden Within"
is about the faces that are hidden within each and every one of us. We are complex personalities and see ourselves differently depending on how we are feeling. We come across so many different people in our daily lives and we share a part of ourselves with each encounter.
When I create a face, I am re-creating part of myself and part of the people who have come into my life in one way or another. I try to loosely create an image of beauty and emotions. My artwork has helped me to overcome difficult moments in my past and I want to encourage others to love themselves and see their own inner beauty.
