Artist's Statement 

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