Born in 1958, Hae Chon Lee grew up in South Korea where he received his Master of Fine Arts overseas at Hong Ik University. Inspired by his past hardships and struggles, his paintings carry a similar message—there is always hope. He now resides in Riverside, California with his studio, Orange Peel Art Studio. His original painting, “Waiting for the Light,” was featured in the published artists magazine How Did You Paint That? in 2005.
