Local artist; Bernadette “Bernie” Lee; recently started Art From Architecture in 2015, after almost thirty years as a fine wine professional. A permanent shoulder injury left her unable to lift cases of wine, but she was still able to lift a pen and paintbrush. Her previous hobby of painting landscapes and drawing custom home portraits, has evolved into a passion for creating lasting memories of places that people hold close to their heart.  

After the drawing is rendered in pencil, it is then drawn with pen and ink, and finished in watercolor, without the use of Photoshop. The finely detailed iconic scenes of Kansas City take from five days to two weeks to complete.
