Bogle, Lee

Property categories:
Drawing, painting and picturing life are among Lee Bogle's earliest memories. A native Northwesterner, his art has always been more than a pastime. For many years he has described his art as a passion. Bogle continues to live in the Northwest, where is is surrounded by the beauty of nature.

After receiving his degree in Art from Central Washington University and pursuing graduate study at the University of Washington, Bogle chose a career in education. During his years of teaching, he continued to spend time pursuing his own artwork. As the demand for his work grew, Bogle was faced with choosing between two careers. He decided to leave teaching to pursue his lifelong dream of being a full-time artist.

For Bogle, the process of creating a painting starts with a bold watercolor wash. "The most exciting and challenging part of the painting experience happens when a brush loaded with several colors of paint hit a very wet surface of watercolor board," says Bogle. "The explosion of color and formation of texture and shapes that happen spontaneously is the foundation for the painting's development." It is on top of this abstract water color wash that images emerges with the use of airbrush, colored pencils, and pastels.

Bogle also enjoys creating many of his images with pastels on a handmade bark paper. The paper has a very textured surface which portrays an aged and primitive quality, and lends itself well to Bogle's style.

Collectors know him for his images of Native Americans- often solitary figures of women. "I try to convey the spirituality in my art that the viewer must interpret for himself," Bogle says. "I want my paintings to show a peaceful contemplation and express a depth of serenity that comes only with quiet inner peace."
