Dominic Pangborn was born in Korea to a single mother and an American soldier during the Korean War. He was adopted at a young age by the Pangborn family of Jackson Michigan and learned very early in life what it takes to make it on your own. Recognized by teachers and his community for his artistic talents, he developed them throughout his high school years and was accepted into the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. With his formal education in hand, he started his career in Chicago before moving to Detroit where he has resided since 1979. His multi-dimensional career spans graphic and fashion design as well as his passion for fine art.. His art is often seen as harmony of contrasts and a balance of Eastern and Western influences. A fervent believer in giving back to one's community, he serves on a variety of boards for charities and nonprofit organizations. Pangborn reflects on the opportunities presented to him and in turn gives passionately of his time, talent and heart.
