ABOUT REN LEE:

I’ve been working with clay since 2005, when I took a class at Sunset Canyon Pottery in Texas for a fun thing to do. Before that, I spent a fair amount of time as a marketing and branding wonk for restaurants and specialty foods. Before that, I worked as a graphic designer. Along the way, I got an MFA in design and a PhD in Advertising, Marketing, Cultural Anthropology and Consumer Psychology. That’s a mouthful of academe and as soon as I finished the ordeal of writing my dissertation I escaped into the relatively more satisfying world of entrepreneurship where I roller coastered through owning an orchard, a packing company and running a specialty crop association for a while. You never know what will lead you to something new and interesting, but I have to admit that everything I ever studied, and everything I ever did is useful and applicable to what I do now: transforming mud into something with presence and attitude.

Another official portrait underway!

December 2020: Ma Ly was commissioned to paint the official portrait of Dr. Joseph Castro, President of California State University, Fresno. It will be added in 2021 to the University’s collection of the past seven Presidents since 1911. http://www.fresnostate.edu/president/investiture/about-fresno-state/presidents.html
