I am an Australian born, European-based painter. (Degree in Fine Art, Painting, South Australian School of Art, 1976).
I lived for nearly 30 years in rural Portugal and am now working from my studio on the edge of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall.
My work is about abstraction from nature and the nature of abstraction. I am fascinated by how we perceive layers and light and am always experimenting on how to visualise an idea.

"Painter Lee Panizza's artistic process involves making abstraction from nature as well as understanding the nature of abstraction. References to light and weather infuse her work..."
