Artist's Statement 

"The SUBJECT matter of my ABSTRACT realist paintings is the Earth's 'natural' environments and images of the 'visible' Universe. My INTENT is to create colorful, beautiful paintings that resonate with the Viewer.  For two decades, I worked in Television as a Film Editor and Producer.  The SKILLS I used as a Film Editor enrich my work as an Abstract Artist.  In the early 1990's, a chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences presented an HONOR to me as the FILM EDITOR of  an EMMY AWARD winning TV News Special, that aired on PBS TV.  My second career (for more than a decade) was as an ATTORNEY.  When I retired from Law I pursued life as a full-time ARTIST.  Besides painting I practice Meditation; Tai Chi; and take long daily walks --- while observing natural surroundings and wildlife.  I grow ORGANIC vegetables and live a primarily Vegetarian lifestyle.  My constant COMPANIONS while I paint are MUSIC --- jazz fushion --- and a 16 year old 'rescue cat' named 'Randy'.  I hope that my Abstract Paintings (and occassional mountain landscapes) add BEAUTY and CALM to YOUR cherished places and spaces"!!!     --- * Lee Pierce
