Lee Ko

Lee was born in Seoul, Korea, in 1976. She currently resides in Waxhaw, NC.
Her artistic Journey evolved working with various mediums, including Metal, Clay, and reclaimed materials.
Lee earned her initial BFA and MFA degrees in Seoul, South Korea. Later, she traveled across the ocean to the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York, where she earned her second MFA. Her education in both the East and West greatly impacted her art and her life. She spreads small units on the panel/wall in a rhythmical variation to complete her wall sculptures. She also likes to capture the essence of everyday moments in her small sculptures, spotlighting the things often overlooked. She takes materials that might have been forgotten or discarded and gives them a new way back in her art. Lee focuses on reminding us that even the little things in life have their own value and can work together in harmony. Through her art, Lee tries to tell us the power of ordinary things when they come.
