Roy Secord is also an arts educator, an instructor, and a master artist/facilitator for public artworks projects.

The artist’s stylistic approach towards painting is inherently ultra-modern, hard-edged, colorist, and Concrete. He derives inspiration from primitive art & decoration, esoteric symbolism & device, and technologically-advanced structure & system. Secord premises that, “All three influences share common geometric expression, common truth, and common mystery. My work is much about those shared commonalities.”
