Charlotte Lees uses a direct method of carving wood, creating a bond between mind and material that energizes her work. Lee's figurative groupings are most recognizable for their exuberant, lively qualities. Other works show her interest in diverse cultures, both ancient and contemporary. Lees graduated cum laude from Bowling Green State University and received her Master of Arts from Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Institute of Art. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for her sculpture. Her maquette of Markers was selected by the Hakone Museum of Japan to be included in the 1991 Rodin Grand Prize Exhibition catalogue as one of the outstanding models.



Recently I have been interested in the relationship between man and nature. I have chosen the fish as my metaphor. Using this recognizable form, I integrate designs that find their origins in diverse cultures. Fish Tales represents ethnic patterns from African, Inuit, prehistoric, and Asian cultures. It retells the story of many people.
