Lee Stevenson was born in Penzance. He studied Fine Art (painting) at Falmouth School of Art and at North Staffordshire University. He took up intaglio printmaking under Sue Lewington at the Penzance School of Art.
Lee is a founder member of the Penwith Printmakers and exhibits regularly with them. Whether his medium is intaglio or relief printmaking or oil painting the work is predominantly a response to the Penwith landscape in which he grew up.
