graduate of Columbus College of Art and Design, Lance earned his MFA in
Painting from the University of Cincinnati. He then taught various art
classes at the University of Dayton for a number of years while raising
his two sons with his wife Jean. Lance spent countless hours coaching
soccer and baseball, at the Gaunt Park pool and sledding hill, and
gardening, canning and cooking organic produce for his family. For a few years
he was a substitute teacher at the high school and middle school. Lance
had previously exhibited and sold abstract paintings in various
galleries and shows throughout the midwest. Once switching his main focus in
art to wildlife, Lance has slowly and steadily amassed a body of work,
and finally had an exhibition in a small gallery in Yellow Springs, Ohio -
would you, could you In a Frame (unfortunately their last show!). More shows
to follow!! This past fall (2015)a wonderful print house in Cincinnati produced
top-quality limited editionreproductions of most of Lance's wildlife paintings.
They are available for sale, with all artist's profits being donated to various national and
international wildlife preservation organizations.
