Artist's Statement 

"TELEVISION was my first career --- as a FILM EDITOR, Producer, and  Host of Community Affairs shows. In the early '90's, a chapter of The National Association of Television Arts and Sciences" awarded an "HONOR" to me as the Film Editor of an EMMY AWARD winning TV News Special, that aired on a PBS station. The SKILLS I used as a Film Editor enrich my work as an Artist.   Since 2003, my ART EDUCATION has been 'self-directed'.  Daily Meditation, practicing Tai Chi, vegetable gardening, and a primarily Vegetarian style diet support my efforts as an Artist."      --- * Lee Pierce



Lee's Art Education is mostly self-directed --- with benefits of former study at the School of a Museum of Fine Arts; a Mentor's guidance; an Art Colony; Workshops; annual Art Festivals and invitations to exhibit paintings in curated &  juried art exhibitions. 


Other Education: B.S.S., Bachelor of Science in Communications (Film & TV) and a J.D. (Law degree)

Lee worked for two decades as a Television Film Editor and Producer.  In the early 1990's, Lee left TV to practice Law.  During the transition, a chapter of "The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences" presented an "Honor" to Lee as the Film Editor of an EMMY AWARD winning TV News Special Report, that aired on a PBS station.   


Since 1995 several of Lee's paintings have won First Prizes (at a juried Art Exhibition and in an Art Contest at the law school Lee attended).


Major Influences include the works of:  Anni Albers; Romare Bearden; Jacob Lawrence; Wassily Kandinsky; Norman Lewis; Henri Matisse; Henri Rousseau; Alma Thomas; and Rolina van Vliet.
