* Lee Pierce'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:   a Bachelor of Science in Communications (Film & Television) and a Juris Doctor (Law degree).  For twenty years, Lee worked as a TV Film Editor and Producer; the skills learned --- from working with film images to 'tell a story' --- fine their way into Lee's abstract paintings.  In the early 1990's, when Lee left TV to attend law school, a chapter of "The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences" presented an Honor to Lee as Film Editor of an Emmy Award-winning TV News Special, which aired on a PBS station.  This honor was the capstone of Lee's career as a Film Editor.   

 

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

 

Major Influences on Lee's style include:  Anni Albers; Romare Bearden; Jacob Lawrence; Wassily Kandinsky; Norman Lewis; Henri Matisse; Henri Rousseau; Alma Thomas; and Rolina van Vliet.
