Resume

Matthew Warren Lee is a Wisconsin born painter of landscapes, architecture, and portraits. He received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee in 2014 and lives and works in Milwaukee. Much of Lee’s work is rooted in his experiences with large scientific devices as a member of the United States Antarctic Program where he worked in science support from 2008-2010. This included a 13 month stay at the Geographic South Pole for Antarctic winter where he learned field medicine and taught watercolor classes to scientists and support personnel.  Lee is currently involved with the Carthage Institute of Paleontology for whom he excavates dinosaur bones in Montana's Hell Creek Geological Formation. Lee taught at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee from 2012-2014, Carthage College from 2014-2015, and currently teaches at Alverno College and the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. His work is exhibited throughout the American Midwest. His paintings and arts writing have been published locally in Third Coast Digest and nationally in New American Paintings and Manifest.
