Lee Hutt studied painting in Belgium as an undergraduate. There, her love of the classical traditions in art was encouraged. Pursuing a course in psychology, Lee received a masters degree in science from Columbia University. Lee continued to take art classes at the New School where she was influenced by the work of Jacob Lawrence and Chaim Gross.

When Lee married and moved to Massachusetts, she intensified her studies in sculpture at Mount Holyoke College.

Combining her skill as an artist with her understanding of the psychology of people, Lee made a natural transition to portraiture and to the figure.

"I work in traditional materials, clay and plaster. It's just hard work and magic.

Each person has a story. I see a face or a figure and read that story. Can I capture that essential in clay? Do you read it and think of your own story? Will these sculptures communicate to the future something about who we are today? Who knows? I am compelled to do it.

In this, I believe myself connected to a tradition with roots in the Renaissance and Antiquity.

As artists we record history. It is a privilege, filled with self criticism, uncertainty and occasional ecstasy."
