A Sampling of artworks by Lee Cullens 

created between 1990 and 2000

This sampling of artworks may be an artist's ego showing through :-) but is in no way otherwise promotional.   It is intended simply for your potential viewing pleasure.  

Two passions throughout my lifetime have been visual arts and studying natural sciences, so in New England at the age of fifty I took up visual arts as a livelihood. Since, having reached a point where diminished dexterity and mobility brought an end to marquetry and sculpture, I've turned to writing.
