A native of Rochester, Minnesota, Bruce graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design before moving to Holland and Portugal, where he studied and worked as an artist for 29 years. For the past twenty years, he has been living and working with his wife Linda in their rural Wisconsin studio, inspired by the scenes and animals surrounding him.
Bruce works primarily with acrylic paint. His colors are bright and the canvases are filled with scenes of drive-ins, old pickups, tractors, trains and memories of a kid growing up in the Midwest. With a sort of whimsical realism, he provides his audience with an artist’s view of his past.
His work is in many collections in Holland and the Midwest.
