H. Lee Shapiro

Lee’s fascination with Zen Buddhism and eastern philosophy is evidenced in the flow and spontaneity of his works. By combining vibrant color with powerful gesture, his dancers are dramatic and expressive. These energies and feelings emerge in all of his subjects, be it landscapes, florals, or wildlife.  Lee’s paintings are displayed in prominent galleries across the country.  He is internationally renowned as the illustrator of the best-selling children’s classic, “There’s No Such Place as Far Away,” by Richard Bach.
