I was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and grew up in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. When I was seventeen my family moved to the United States. I graduated from Ferndale High School, Michigan, in 1966. After a tour of duty in Vietnam, I moved to Toronto, Canada, and earned a degree in graphic design from George Brown College. In 1978 I moved back to the United States and worked as a Graphic Designer in the Detroit area. In 2000, I married Jennifer and, for 10 years, we worked together as mural artists. Then, in 2005, we both decided to pursue our real passions; for Jennifer it was fused glass, and for me it was metal. Together we design and create home decor and garden art combining the two mediums, which we sell at art fairs and galleries. 2018 is my 4th time participating in ArtPrize.
