Cedar Lee is a Portland, Oregon-based contemporary artist specializing in original oil paintings of redwood forests and lotus flowers. Past work includes a series of solar eclipses in fantasy landscapes, and a Tree of Life series.

Cedar has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions since the late 1990s in many venues: municipal libraries, coffee shops, the National Security Agency, San Diego’s Museum of the Living Artist, national juried exhibits and arts centers. Cedar is represented by art galleries on the east and west coasts. Over the past decade, she has sold hundreds of original paintings into private collections in at least 17 U.S. states and around the world as far as Canada, Sweden and Italy.

Almost all of the works shown on this site have been sold. See currently available originals here. See complete past archives here. If you are interested in commissioning a painting similar to any of the sold works shown here, depending on current workload Cedar will consider requests.
