Lyle moved to Albuquerque in 1996 and In 2003 started painting full time upon retirement from TVI Community College as Facility Architect. He continues to devote full time to his art in developing his artistic sensitivity and sharpen his visual skills through painting and observation. Lyle has studied painting with Albert Handell, Doug Dawson, Deborah Secor, Eric Michaels, Leona Turner,
Richard McKinley and Ann Templeton. Because of his architectural experience he often incorporates man made structures into his landscapes to give it scale and additional interest.
Lyle continually strives to simplify the elements and abstract the essence of the scene, not to imitate or copy, but to be inspired by the ambiance. He feels art is like a journey towards understanding our inner relationship to our environment, while developing a greater intuitive response to the beauty around us and hopefully, through Art, to inspire others to further appreciate our natural and man made environment.
In the eight years since Lyle has been painting, he has sold over 80 paintings.
