Douglas Gruizenga

Interlochen, MI, United States

I grew up in Portage, Michigan with a goal to become an automotive engineer. After the first semester at Western Michigan University, I transferred to the Art Department where I earned a BA in art education and an MA in sculpture and furniture design. To earn a living I worked as a psychiatric social worker. In 2003 I began to focus, again,on sculpture. In 2005, I moved to Interlochen. The inspiration afforded me by the students there keeps my creative juices flowing. I am fortunate to have had outdoor sculptures exhibited on loan or purchased in about 150 venues in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, West Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Virginia, and Florida.
