Lee obtained a first class honours degree in Decorative Arts, a process-driven course, that focuses on pushing material innovation, developing craftsmanship and technical ability, whilst challenging and redefining the role of the artisan within the 21st Century. Lee then went on to study an MA in Textile Futures at the prestigious Central Saint Martins, part of the University of the Arts, London, a course that places value on re-shaping our future environments through challenging perceptions, pushing innovation and hybrid design through the cross-fertilisation of multidisciplinary platforms.
Lee believes that although we are moving towards a technological future, human nature dictates there will still be a greater need for the tangible; flavours, textures and poetic imagery that stimulates and awaken our senses, enabling us to connect on a deeper and more meaningful level. As society evolves, the demands of our lifestyles and our ever-changing landscapes, requires a flexible individual capable of adapting to this growing environment. As such she believes that her role as a creative, will take on many forms. A provocateur willing to challenge ideals and stimulate debates, a visionary to inspire and stir the imagination, or a futurologist, seeking new tools and methodologies to design for a better future.
Living in an age of global activity, requires an individual who is proactive in nature, willing to enhance their knowledge through learning, and will dynamically seek to utilise opportunities and their skills to actively collaborate with others from diverse academic and creative backgrounds, in finding innovative solutions in an increasingly progressive world.
