Claire ‘Clee’ Lee – The Art Studio
Clee is a full-time freelance artist working in Sheffield. She creates large-scale, ethereal, sculptural installations, often with welded or woven wire. She explores concepts of absence/presence, connection/disconnection, liminality and the uncanny. She collaborates with other artists, and experiments with movement and performance, engaging her body as both medium and tool.
Clee’s work is influenced by her previous twenty-five-year career as a clinical psychologist in women’s mental and physical health, when she applied her interest in the mind-body to her sculpture. She is also trained in art psychotherapy and, for ten years, contributed to the Art Therapy Northern Programme.
