Artist Biography

Born in Joplin, Missouri, Lea studied painting at Kansas State College of Pittsburg, studying under notable American artists Eugene Larkin and Eliot O’Hara. Following this, he earned a master’s degree in printmaking at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. In 1961 he moved to Texas and began teaching at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas where he started the department’s printmaking program. In addition to his painting and collage work, Lea is best known for his pioneering experimental print making techniques related to viscosity printing, which combine elements of collage, painting, and an embossing technique known as "callagraph.” He first began experimenting with this method in 1965, using an ink viscosity process and techniques employed in relief, lithograph, and intaglio printing. As seen in Lea’s experimental prints of the 1960s and 1970s, the effects of this technique create complex and colorful compositions with highly textured surfaces and varying tonal effects. Thus, the process results in unique prints ideal for a small edition.
