Big Tree Studio Exhibition by Artist Yan Lee

Posted on May 29, 2014

Be among the first to experience the character of famous and historic trees through an exhibition featuring the pen-and-ink portraits of Artist Yan Lee.

Lee attained the degree of Ph.D. in geophysics at Texas A&M University. It was there that he became enamored with “The Century Tree” on campus that has shaded tens of thousands of Aggies since 1898. Lee vowed to draw it for posterity. This experience was so personally overwhelming that he resolved to search out and immortalize the famous and historic trees in America.

Lee’s pen-and-ink portraits of famous and historic trees are sketched in minute detail with delicate precision. When each portrait is completed, the tree appears living, exquisite and unique, and will remain so for all time.

Lee captures the beauty and character of trees that live among us. Like a transcendentalist poet, Lee says, “You see my pictures, you want to see the trees. You see the trees, you want to see my pictures. I let these trees live in your home.” Capturing details that take viewers’ breath away, he is known to spend one hour on just one square inch of his art, capturing the character of each tree he meets. Come see the life Lee captures in his art.

Lee lives with his wife, Lu, in Spring, Texas. For more information, visit his website at
