Jake Lee was born in Monterey, California on October 23, 1915 of Chinese parents. As a child Lee began painting scenes of the Chinese communities and the fisherman of Monterey.  After graduating from San Jose State College in California, he studied at the Otis Art Institute and with Dong Kingman.  His watercolors are a blending of occidental and Oriental techniques.

By the early 1940s he had settled in Los Angeles, where he gave demonstrations at art clubs and taught at Bra (showing 500 of 5438 characters).
