London based, Scots born artist Lee Borthwick creates custom-made and site specific natural artworks for residential, commercial and exterior spaces.Lee studied Textile design at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen, Turku Polytechnic in Finland and received an MA in constructed textiles from the Royal College of Art in 2008.
It is Lee’s distinctive approach of combining pieces of tree and mirror that led to the creation of her signature “Mirror Tapestries” and the establishing of her studio in 2009.
