Lee Steadman expresses his interest in nature through the art of painting. This internationally acclaimed artist has captured the essences of natural phenomena in his large-scale watercolors---from the majesty of a mountain sunrise to the elegance of a butterfly's wing. He has observed nature firsthand his whole life: on a Smithsonian Institution-sponsored expedition to the Galápagos Islands; on an excursion to record the wildlife of the Labrador Peninsula; in the fields and woods of his boyhood farm in Pennsylvania.

As shown by the watercolor painting on the right, "The Tulip Puddle," Steadman is completely at home out-of-doors. His work has found a home in The New York State Museum, the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History, the Leight Yawkey-Woodson Art Museum, and the Smithsonian's Museum of Natural History. Lee Steadman's art has appeared nationwide in university galleries, one-person exhibitions, and invitational art shows.

Steadmans's work can also be seen in a number of books. He has contributed to the National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America. His trip to the Galápagos as a field illustrator formed the basis for this 51 watercolors for Galápagos: Discovery on Darwin's Island, published by the Smithsonian Institution Press. In 1993, Lee Steadman illustrated I Do and I Don't, written by children's television personality Fred Rogers.

From the rugged tundra to the lush tropics, nature has taken shape under the brush of Lee Steadman, and has been rendered with unerring accuracy, vibrant stillness, and natural beauty.
