My name is Pascal Lee. I am a planetary scientist. Welcome to my website. I post my drawings and paintings here. They are about space and time, and our tiny yet hopeful place in their vastness. You will also find information about my children's book, MISSION: MARS, and about PASSAGE TO MARS, the documentary film on our epic NORTHWEST PASSAGE DRIVE EXPEDITION across the Arctic. Enjoy your visit.


A Mars Astronaut returns to base by ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle) at the end of a long day of gritty fieldwork. Name tag left blank. Who will he or she be?... (Oil on board, 11 x 14 inches, 2020)




When I visit schools, I always bring a few copies of MISSION: MARS to give away, and now also prints of MARS ASTRONAUT to write the names of school kids on the blank name tag. It encourages them to love STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math), to believe in themselves, and to follow their dreams. Plus they tell me it's cool and fun! To help me bring more books and prints to schools, especially in underserved communities, please contact me.
