Lee Bogle can't remember when he wasn't an artist. Drawing, painting, and picturing life are among his earliest memories and have always been more than a pastime. For many years he has described his art, prints and posters as a passion. "Painting defines me," he says from his home in Kirkland, Washington, where he lives with his wife, Sherri, and their two sons. "It's who I am, not just what I do." Bogle received his degree in art from Central Washington University and pursued graduate study at the University of Washington. His art, prints and posters are exhibited widely in galleries and museums throughout the country. With a growing number of avid collectors, his limited edition prints sell out soon after release. Collectors know him for his art, prints and posters of Native Americans, often solitary figures of women whose beauty far surpasses the superficial. Other works depict men and women, who appear as soulmates rather than mere romantic couples. While his paintings artistically speak for themselves, they also reflect his appreciation for the organic. Working with muted, atmospheric colors, he is a master at depicting the expressive quality of light.
