Sacha Lees is one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading 'Fantastic' Fine artists.

She began her career working on The Lord of the Rings trilogy as an illustrator, airbrush artist and creature designer. These days Lees, originally from the West Coast, is a leading artist. She developed her painting technique in an Italian atelier and now specialises in the "fantastic" genre.

Sacha’s painting skillfully conveys a parallel world of metaphysical beauty and portraiture. Her fine paint work and imaginative compositions transport the viewer to another world - a better world.

Sacha’s paintings have been chosen on multiple occasions to feature in the periodical Spectrum among the world’s best contemporary fantastic artists. Her work has also been selected for many other publications including 'Women of Wonder', showcasing accomplished past and present international female Fantastic Artists.

Sacha has achieved recognition for her unique and beautiful work in NZ and overseas and is in high demand with art collectors. 

Lees currently lives and works in Wellington, New Zealand, where her paintings are created amongst bustling family life. She is a wife and full time mother to two busy young children.
