Artist's Statement 

"I paint abstract and expressionist STYLE observations of Earth's 'natural' environments and images of the 'visible' Universe.  For two decades, I worked in Television as a Film Editor and Producer. In the early 1990's, a chapter of The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences presented an HONOR to me for my part as the Film Editor of an EMMY AWARD winning Television News Special.  The SKILLS I used as a Film Editor enrich my work as an ARTIST."  

In the early 1990's, I graduated from Law school.  In '04, while still working as a Lawyer, I studied Art in evening classes. When I retired from Law, I pursued Art --- as a painter and collage Artist. 

Besides painting, I practice Meditation and Tai Chi.  During daily walks I observe Earth's 'natural' surroundings and wildlife.  These are the inspiration for my artwork."  * Lee Pierce
