Dug is a self-taught artist who was born and raised in Vermont. Whether they are paintings, prints, poems, or monologues, Dug has been creating things for most of his life and that is what he is happiest doing. His paintings are in many private collections and his work has been part of group exhibitions in New York City.
Dug is hard to categorize, but probably falls somewhere between folk art and outsider art. His whimsical paintings and prints tend to be both absurd and serious, drawing parallels between the humorous and the banal.
