Born in South Korea, Hee has been painting since her medical school days in Seoul. She even had a solo show, albeit small, at a coffee shop around the campus at the time. She had an informal art education in Korea with private instructions by a professional artist. Although she went on to become a physician under the name of Hee Hyoun Lee, M.D. and continued to work full time as a radiologist in private practice in Maryland, she continued her art education through evening and weekend classes at the Maryland College of Art and the Art League in Virginia (2000-2004).

In addition to private collections, her work is in the permanent collection of the College of Notre Dame, Baltimore, MD
In August 2015, she retired from her hectic medical practice after 43 years. She lives in Potomac, MD
