We are thrilled to announce that Lee White, an illustrator from Portland, Oregon, has been selected as the Poster Artist for the 68th Annual Salem Art Fair & Festival, happening July 21-23 in Salem, Oregon. White has created a custom piece which will be reproduced onto a limited run of commemorative posters, t-shirts and other memorabilia for the event. Selected by a jury from a pool of previous Art Fair artists, White will also be returning to the Artist Marketplace for the third year in 2017.
White spends his days breathing life into his imaginary world. He works primarily in watercolor, but likes to include all sorts of media, such as ink, colored pencil and collage. He has illustrated a number of children’s books, including What Are You Glad About? What Are You Mad About? and The Lost Track of Time. His latest, Emma and the Whale, will be released in March 2017. White has also done commercial work for various clients, including Marks & Spencer, Amazon, Laika, United Airlines, Verizon, Disney, and National Geographic. He is represented by Rodeen Literary Management, and Spinning Yarn Illustration Agency. White also shows his personal work in various galleries and at art fairs. He received his MFA from University of Hartford, and a bachelors from ArtCenter College of Design.
