BEHIND THE LENS

Roger Leege draws on his past as a lawn boy, meat cutter, storyteller, trucker, EMT, trim carpenter, bass player, painter, embalmer’s assistant, printmaker, analog photographer, journalist,  videographer, dissident,  educator, computer scientist, Florida man, and very private investigator, to create words and pictures that range from straight to strange

Roger earned BA and MA degrees in Visual Arts at Goddard College, followed by post-graduate work in Industrial Technology at Central Connecticut State University and in Computer Science at the University of Hartford. As an artist and educator, he was an early adopter and evangelist for computer art and digital artist's tools.  He has worked at the intersection of Art and Technology throughout his career and has taught scholastic, college, and adult-level Visual Arts, Indus-trial Technology, Photography, Serigraphy, Videography, Desktop Publishing, and Web Programming, as well as Computer Science, Technical Drawing, CAD, and Engineering Design. With gallery, print, and online credits in the US, Canada, and Europe, he currently lives and works in southwest Florida.
