Karen Lee, Cary, North Carolina Member Since January 2011 Artist Statement The story of me is a pretty straight line. I always wanted to be an illustrator and fortunately that is exactly what I've done. Passionately. I have illustrated many books for children in addition to my author/illustrated book ABC Safari. My art is regularly featured in Highlights For Children Magazine. I earned a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design, in Columbus Ohio. That's where I met my husband, artist and bluegrass musician Tim Lee. We are raising our two smart kids in a very creative environment in Cary, North Carolina.
