Clifford Valentino Lee studied at the Grand Rapids Art Gallery and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Mr. Lee applied his art commercially, designing plastic shower curtains, glass bottles and chinaware, before his paintings received acclaim. He sold more than 9,000 paintings done in his impressionistic ”palette-knife” technique, which he acquired during study at Kendall Academy, the Grand Rapids Art Gallery and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He also was an illustrator for Ebony magazine.
