Life as a House invents the spaces Toronto artist Lee Richmond dreams of — the houses, the rooms, the colors, the textures — and in this exploration of her mind at play she subtly reveals her unique view of life.
Each of the many rooms in the series is constructed out of paper and patterns, layering travel drawings with tissue that once wrapped household items; cards and letters from friends are combined with paint chip samples for past homes. The result is a blending of colors, textures, and memories from poignant places in Lee’s past. – Artist Statement

I used to create houses on paper all the time! Of course I just drew lines and never got into this kind of detail – fun!
Pleasing to the eye, and I like the innocence!
Innocence – too true. Almost childlike. Agree.
