About Lee PIERCE

(born in the early 1950's) --my first career was in TELEVISION (as a Film Editor & Producer). In 1991, the "National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences" presented an HONOR to me as Film EDITOR of an EMMY AWARD winning special News report that aired on a PBS TV station. I've discovered that the skills I learned as a Film Editor inform my work as an Artist. My second career was in LAW (as an Attorney). In 2004, I began studying ART -- enrolling in several Continuing Education classes at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston, MA). In 2009, I retired from the court system; moved with my husband to the Midwest; and continued an independent study of ART History and techniques --- working from my Home Studio.

The cultures of indigenous people inform my choice of color palettes and compositions. I paint with a consciousness Mother Earth --- HER natural environments and wildlife. I use geometric forms and vectors to create movement and depth in my Abstract-Realist and Expressionist paintings; they enable me to express my appreciation for Life throughout the infinite Cosmos..

Planet Earth needs human activity that recycles plastics; protects soil from toxic chemicals; protects the Amazon Rain Forests; and safeguards the bodies of water on the planet. As an Artist, I try to do my part by recycling canvases and using up most of the paint that collects on my brushes, sponges, and palette. This avoids unnecessary pollution of the wash-water with large amounts of unused paint.

Stay safe . . . stay masked . . . and
may Peace flow to and from you...
