About Lee Joyner

Lee started sculpting at the early age of 12, drawing for years before that, after being raised reading authors Madeleine L'Engle, H. P. Lovecraft, Stephen King and Piers Anthony, as well as the fantasies from Watership Down to Duncton Wood and many others. His brother raised him on Dungeons and Dragons in the 70’s, which moved into the rpgs Chill and Call of Cthulhu (due to his love of horror).  This love of escapism and fantasy worlds naturally led to all things video game (he is still an avid gamer today).  His obsession with fantasy and creature art led to Lee attending Savannah College of Art and Design on scholarship for Illustration, then traveling the country to various other colleges and majors, ending at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh for Industrial Design. 

After working with various animatronic firms (trying desperately to not have to work in the real world) from Florida to Tennessee to Michigan, moving from one job to the next.  Lee ended up in Los Angeles, creating and contributing to some of Hollywood's iconic creations, from Mimic to Godzilla, and Star Trek DS9 and Voyager to Stargate SG-1. He started teaching at Cinema Makeup School to make ends meet between industry jobs, and eventually became one of their directors. Lee now focuses on Cinema Makeup School and his creature concept design, bringing to life creatures that are an amalgam of books, films and illustrations and paintings that have influenced his psyche and made him who he is today.
