Reginald K. Gee

The following excerpts and information are courtesy of Joyce Furhman, a full biography and further information is available upon request:

“In the spring of 1964, I was born to hard working parents of Nigritic and (Blackfoot and Cherokee) Indian descent in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The youngest of three, I began drawing around the age of four…My late teen years were near dormant, but turning twenty-one, I felt renewed urgency to become serious about art….At an outdoor arts festival in 1986 I got a chance to show a few pieces. It felt nice…Galleries and museums followed and I discovered again that people are grateful to see colorful images reflecting life, or fictional scenes done with taste….to “do” art comes from every direction in anger, desperation, all emotions put to use. My being here, blessed with an ability to make someone think, giggle, or at least smile, is genuine reward…priceless fuel.”
