JOHN LEE REED
Indulge in the joys of childhood on the beaches of the Atlantic and Pacific. Dive into the thrills of surfing and surf culture. Go inside the mind of an artist searching for his voice and expressing himself in a way only a seasoned professional can. That's what you get when you experience John Lee Reed's artwork.
After graduating college in Virginia and spending time on Madison Avenue pursuing an advertising career, John finished first in his class at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. He went on to design T-shirts for Disney and Warner Bros. in Florida, an experience that put him on the cutting edge of computer-generated graphics in the 1990s. John then relocated to Los Angeles to head up the design departments of two large toy companies, Applause Toys and Beverly Hills' Equity Marketing. The artist, his wife Vali, and their three children moved to Sonoma in 2003 and now happily live in Windsor, California.
