About Me

"Night Sky" (c) Lee Pierce 2018

My Background

As a kid, I enjoyed paint-by-numbers and drawing techniques that a babysitter, who was an Artist, taught to me.  In junior high school, my favorite subject was Art.  

My first career was in Television, as a Film Editor and Producer for 20 years. I retired as a lawyer after working in a court system for many years.

Since 2004,  my art education has been self-directed and has benefitted from former study at the School of a Museum of Fine Arts; guidance from a Mentor; an Art Colony; participation in Art Festivals, juried Art Gallery exhibitions; and my study of drawing, collage, and painting techniques.

My Medium

I use acrylics on stretched canvas and fine paper.  The geometric forms and highlights in my compositions  are gouache, ink, hand-made papers, and watercolor.

My Inspiration

My style of painting is described as Abstract and Expressionist.  Although the SUBJECT MATTER is non-representational the source of my subjects originate from the Earth's 'natural' environments and  wildlife I observe during daily walks.  Geometric forms and images are from my observation of the night sky.
