ZEN HIDEOUT (n.) - A PLACE ONE RETREATS TO FIND A STATE OF CALM FOCUS, GUIDED BY INTUITION RATHER THAN BY CONSCIOUS EFFORT.

Hello, I'm Lee. Welcome to my shop!

My goal is to create art that will give your space the zen-like quality it deserves. I sincerely hope the colors I choose evoke a sense of joy and help make your space more inviting.

I love painting because it helps me enter what is known as a "flow state." This mental state seems to transform time and allows full immersion in oneself and the activity or image at hand. 
Anything I can do to give my brain a rest is welcomed!

 

Psychologist Mihaly Csíkszentmihályi described flow as:

"BEING COMPLETELY INVOLVED IN AN ACTIVITY FOR ITS OWN SAKE. THE EGO FALLS AWAY. TIME FLIES. EVERY ACTION, MOVEMENT, AND THOUGHT FOLLOWS INETIVABLY FROM THE PREVIOUS ONE, LIKE PLAYING JAZZ. YOUR WHOLE BEING IS INVOLVED, AND YOU'RE USING YOUR SKILLS TO THE UTMOST."

Each of the paintings you see on this website are original and one-of-a-kind. I create them in my office/studio in Baltimore, MD. 

I'm continually inspired by nature, empathy, society and culture, music, and the lovely people in my life. You can usually find me painting while listening to a comedy podcast or classic rock.
