Lyle Polyak relocated from suburban Illinois to Clearwater. Florida in 2005, to enroll in Eckerd College. There, he advanced the artistic skill which had aided him since childhood, by sketching and photographing the wildlife and scenery of Boca Ciega Bay, and the surrounding beaches. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and, for some time, sought out a career suited to his area of studies. Post-graduation, he was introduced to local artistic societies by friend and painter, Arlen Thorenson. He accumulated memberships to the Pinellas Park Art Society, The Exhibiting Society of Artists, Tampa Regional Artists and others. Learning from local, master artists, he continued to experiment with new genres and techniques, adopting and modifying the ones suited to his style. The art societies, to which he enjoys membership, continue to offer valuable exhibits, through which his works are displayed abroad. The repute and rewards that come of these exhibits have allowed him to further his education, meet interesting individuals and earn a career in the advertising business. Lyle Polyak, now a commissionable illustrator, strives to bring art appreciators to a richer understanding of nature and history through his works.
