Plein-air painter Lee Englund paints exclusively from life. Lee started drawing at a very early age, and has been oil painting for over forty years. Lee's paintings are an emotional response to what he observes. His love of nature and art have given him a passion for painting the landscape on location, which offers him a challenge he cannot resist. Lee tries to achieve a creative expression in his landscapes, and at the same time interpret a place and a day for the viewer.

Lee graduated with his Masters Degree in Fine Art from the University of Wisconsin, Superior, and holds a BFA and BAA from the University of Minnesota, Duluth. For over twenty years, he has taught drawing and painting in the Duluth Public Schools, private lessons, and a variety of workshops in the United States. He recently retired from Lake Superior College in Duluth, MN where he taught painting.

Lee has studied with a number of other prominent painters such as Robert Hoffman, Joe Paquet, and David Leffel. Lee is a member of Oil Painters of America and National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society. His work has been accepted into many regional, national,
and international juried art shows in which he has been the recipient of several awards.



Lee has displayed his work in many locations across the United States. Presently, he is represented by Great Lakes Gift and Gallery, Blue Iris Gallery, and Lee Englund Fine Art Gallery, Duluth, Minnesota.

Lee's painting, "Lakota Alla Prima" won 1st Prize at the 8th Annual Show of the Santa Rita Art League, in Green Valley, Arizona, March 6, 2016.
