Aimee Lee

Aimee Lee earned her BA at Oberlin College and her MFA from Columbia College Chicago. Her original Fulbright research led to the first hanji studio in North America, an award-winning book, Hanji Unfurled, and an active studio practice that includes jiseung, joomchi, paper textile, botanical paper, and natural dyeing techniques. She travels the world to teach, exhibit, and serve as a resident artist while also building and enhancing studios for Korean and East Asian papermaking. Aimee teaches artists’ books at the Cleveland Institute of Art and is an Ohio Arts Council Heritage Fellow. Her favorite plant for papermaking is milkweed and her most recent Fulbright Senior Scholar research focused on bamboo screens for hanji making in Korea.
