Her work is part of many corporate and private collections including the Butler Institute of Art and the Academy Art Museum in Easton, Maryland. Her art hangs in Baltimore's City Hall, The Fort McHenry National Shrine, the U.S. State Department, and the Star Pass Resort in Arizona. Carol Lee's exhibits include the Gilcrease and Albuquerque Museums' “Miniature” Shows, Tucson Museum's “Women Artists of the West Show,” the C.M. Russell Museum Show and John Pence Gallery's Still Life Shows. She has won many awards including first place in the Oil Painters of America (OPA) On-Line Showcase (Signature) and a Regional OPA Award of Excellence. She has won Best Sporting Art at the International Museum of the Horse, the Cheyenne Frontier Days Show, and the Salmagundi Club in New York. Carol won a Fredrix Spirit of America Award, the Best Painting by a Maryland Artist in the Easton, Maryland, Plein Air Event, and has won 13 awards in international miniature competitions. In the past two prestigious Art Renewal Center (ARC) Salons, Carol has been a finalist five times and received an Honorable Mention.
She is a Signature Member of the OPA and has elevated to Associate Member of the American Academy of Equine Art.

She is a graduate of Towson State University, holds a Masters of Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art, and is a graduate of the Schuler School of Fine Arts, where she still teaches part-time. It is important to note that her traditional training allows her to work with the materials and techniques of the Old Masters. She prepares her surfaces with lead and glue, grinds her own pigments, and paints with Maroger medium.
Carol Lee paints a wide range of subject matter including landscape, figurative, equine, still life, and Western themes. She is recognized in the West for her Native American subjects, while the rolling hunt and reservoir country of her home in Phoenix, Maryland, provides lovely landscape locations. In addition to her full-time art career, she teaches and holds workshops.
