Monthly Art Demo


Walter Lee

Art has been a passion for Walter Lee since he was a young boy growing up in South Korea. After moving to the United States, Walter applied to the University of Minnesota where he would earn his Master’s degree and Ph.D. in Mass Communication and Advertising. But he found himself naturally gravitating back towards art. However, he struggled to find work as an artist as an immigrant from Korea. He eventually found himself in real estate as a commercial appraiser until retirement.

Since retiring, Walter has dedicated all his time to his original passion and talent. Although he has been painting throughout his life, it has really been during the past 20 years that Walter has been able to hone his skills and create his own take on “life in landscapes.”

His plein air oil paintings have been selected into many Juried Art Shows including the California Art Club and Laguna Plein Air Painters Association in 2019 and 2020. His oil paintings have been awarded many prizes including Best of Show at the Yorba Linda Art Show in 2018.

In 2017, Walter opened his own workshop in the City of Brea. His goal is to teach impressionistic techniques of oil painting in a simplified and value-guided manner. It also serves as a place to display his art in a non-intimidating environment for both novice and seasoned art lovers alike.
