Aaryn Lee is an interdisciplinary artist working in drawing/mark making, mixed-media, printmaking, installation, projection, time-based media, and performance. Her work tends to be organic in structure, repetitive in nature, somber in mood, and touched with the muted overcast tones from her hometown of Portland, Oregon. Themes investigated in the work relate to memory, ritual, body dysmorphia, and the female body. 

Aaryn was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, raised in the Pacific Northwest, and is currently living and working in Huntsville, Alabama. She has a public studio at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment, the largest privately owned arts facility in the south.  Her studio can be found on the third floor in the south building in studio 325.

In addition to her studio practice, Aaryn is an art educator. She is currently an adjunct professor at The University of Alabama in Huntsville where she teaches drawing foundations. 


Aaryn graduated from Portland State University and received a Bachelor of Arts in Art: Art History with a Studio Concentration in Printmaking, Cum Laude, in 2012.  She is currently a candidate for a Master of Fine Art at Lesley University and a recipient of the Stauch-Mosse Merit Scholarship. She will defend her thesis in June of 2022.
