Lee's work explores animal protagonists and the emotional spaces and physical landscapes where humans and animals co-habitate. Circulatory systems, ecological processes of flow, immersion, and convergence inform much of her work.
Her series of nocturnal photographs of animals won the Clarence John Laughlin Award and was featured in a solo show at The Ogden Museum of Southern Art in 2014 and at Arthur Roger Gallery, New Orleans..
Her immersive video and sculptural installations have been shown at the Contemporary Art Center in New Orleans, the Acadiana Center for the Arts, and the Alexandria Museum of Art. As a Southern Constellations Fellow and artist-in-residence at Elsewhere, she invited horses to explore a museum housed in a former thrift store. Her work has been featured on National Geographic's blog PROOF, Lenscratch, and Oxford American.
