Jake Lee is a graduate of Vanderbilt University; he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors in Art in May 2016. His work has been shown in student and group shows in the Nashville area. Jake currently lives in Nashville after a one-year expedition to the Pacific Northwest, where he experienced many new facets of the natural and built environment. His current work is perhaps most keenly focused on the nexus of those two spheres, as well as the effect their interplay has on the human experience.
