There’s something immediately arresting about Ariel Lee’s painted landscapes. Those dramatic colours! The glorious valleys! Pristine mountains! Much like a tourism ad, Ariel’s work makes you want to buy a one-way ticket to North America’s national parks. The Californian artist happens to be a keen rock climber and backpacker, which may explain why she’s interested in painting breathtaking vistas. See more from Ariel below, or on Instagram.
