Dee explores themes of living in the countryside, and activities she enjoys such as sewing, hanging out the washing, cycling being out and about or alone pondering life.
In some ways her work is less about life as she sees it but a mirrored reflection to it. Obviously her experiences in fashion and textiles plays a part as do her memories of Norfolk, and the constantly changing landscape.
Dee was born in South Norfolk in 1957. From quite an early age she found excitement challenge and escapism in making and looking at art and images and in other artists. Inspired by a love of fashion and at the time horses, influenced by among others, Munnings, Hockney to Jackie magazine she soon decided she really wanted to be an artist. With a few set backs but much help and encouragement from many people, learning along the way she now works as a full time painter.
