biography

Doug Huston is an artist who loves analog music, digital and traditional print mediums, and is friend to all critters - except bluejays and rats (for now).

He received his BFA from Michigan State University and his MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Huston moved to the Chicago area where he began teaching at the School of the Art Institue of Chicago (1976 - present). He introduced the Print Department to water-based screenprinting and was the first in the department to own a computer and use digital output as a printmaking tool.

To break away from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Chicago, Doug located his studio in a quiet property at the edge of a small forest preserve in the western suburbs which serves as inspiration for his work. He currently lives there with his wife and multiple fuzzy and feathered "children".

Doug is in numerous collections around the globe, including the Brooklyn Museum, the Cranbrook Academy of Art, the Detroit Institute of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum School of Boston; the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, and the University of Iowa Museum of Art.
