Through art, Youmee Lee explores her intersectional experiences as a Deaf Korean American woman. She studied drawing and printmaking prior to earning her MFA in Film and Animation from Rochester Institute of Technology. Youmee’s niche is intertwining handmade Korean paper, hanji, with other artforms like ceramics and animation, where she brings stories to life.
At the Anderson Center, Youmee utilized several facilities including the Granary Print Studio for intaglio and letterpress printmaking and the Dark Room for controlled stop-motion animation photography, in addition to a large visual arts space in the Tower View North Studios as a home base for her mixed media practice.
