Artist Derek Gundy lives and works in the Pacific Northwest near Seattle, Washington. Gundy grew up on the rugged coast of Maine,
learning the business of art supplies, picture framing, and gallery in his family's business, Huston-Tuttle & Gallery One. After earning a BFA degree
at Maine College of Art in 1992, Gundy returned to the family, where he would have his first one man show, as well as participate in many group and juried shows.
In 2003 Gundy & his wife moved to the Seattle area. Gundy now manages a succesful art supply and framing operation "Artists' Edge" in Poulsbo, Washington, just across the Puget Sound from Seattle.
For the past 5 years, Gundy has also developed an education program, facilitating art classes and workshops for well known instructors as well as teaching some himself.
The Artistic Wine Concept began shortly after arriving in the west, where wineries, wine bars, & wine shops inspired his imaginative work in this direction.
