Hi, my name is Lee Pearce, I am a West Midlands based Photographer, Artist & Retoucher.
I have always been interested in visual mediums and started drawing at an early age. I began teaching myself digital art in my teens and found a love for creating portraits, often with a fantasy twist.
I enjoyed creating images of real people in fantastic settings but also liked creating images of complete fiction. I often used free stock photos as references for poses, lighting etc. but struggled to find photos which matched the images I had in my mind. So I decided to take up photography to produce my own references to use for my digital paintings.
Once I started taking photographs, I found that I actually enjoyed the photography and editing processes even more than I did digital painting.
I have since transitioned mainly into the photographic medium with painting becoming my secondary passion.
