Lee-Ann Ormandy-Becker was born in Mbabane, Swaziland in 1962 but her parents returned to South Africa when she was two years old. She now resides in Rooiels where she works full-time in her studio.
After a year in USA as a Rotary Exchange Student, Lee-Ann registered with the Natal Technicon for a Fine Arts Diploma but didn’t complete the diploma. She did one year with UNISA. Lee-Ann had her first solo exhibition at NSA Gallery 1997 and has participated in a number of group exhibitions over the years. Lee-Ann had a painting selected for the Brett Kebble 2004 exhibition and was awarded a Merit Award by CSA Western Cape for her ceramics in 2019.
Both clay and oil paint are part of Lee-Ann’s creative process, with her having to divide her time between the two mediums and they both reflect Lee-Ann’s need to work with texture and tactility.
