Lee Chapman was born in Tampa, Florida, in 1946. She has lived in, left and returned to Lawrence three different times, most recently from 1996 to the present. Work has appeared at 6 Gallery, LOYO exhibitions, and various venues in the 1960s and 70s. She has created cover art for a number of small-press books, most notably Barry Giffords’ book of poems, Flaubert At Key West. As a student at San Francisco Art Institute, she learned she was a “sit-down artist,” and has been sitting down to draw ever since. Her medium is ink and colored pencil exclusively.
