Mi Young Lee uses water soluble oils on paperboard or canvas to produce her abstract paintings. In her statement of philosophy and technique she says: "The style and techniques I utilize in translating my feelings to images have grown from within myself as a result of my emotional response to my work and my life's experiences. The actual source of the energy that inspires me and the effect that my work has on other people is not my primary concern in creating my art. While I am pleased when people find something beautiful in my work that they can relate to, my purpose for creating is not to decorate, but rather it is to visually express my feelings. My paintings are a composite of geometric forms, organic shapes, gestures, and texture, combined in a kaleidoscope of color to create an image of harmony, energy and optimism."
