Born in Guthrie Center, Iowa and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Doug began his fascination with drawing as a young child. After a short stint studying cabinet making at TVI, he began an apprenticeship with renowned sculptor Federico Armijo, an experience which changed his life. He moved to Boston in 1973 where he worked on restoring old houses while still creating his own sculpture and furniture.


In 1978 he met his wife Jane, a classical oboist who inspired his line of music accessories, and moved to Rhode Island living first in Newport (more old houses) and later Jamestown where he has a small shop and large gardens.

His work has been shown at Galeria Sigala in Taos, Apropos Gallery in Boston, Jessica Hagen Fine Art and Station 29 galleries in Newport, and Randall Gallery in Jamestown. He has also participated in member shows at the Newport Art Museum and the Conanicut Island Art Association.

Doug has shown his furniture at Fine Furnishings Providence, the Chicago One of a Kind show, and the Philadelphia Fine Furnishings show. He has also been selected as a finalist in the Wharton Esherick museum competition.
