Bruce is fascinated with all things technical but is just as interested in animate subjects as well. He'll draw the NASA space station one day and the latest women's fashion for Nordstrom the next. The day after will be a portrait of the Chairman of the Board. He's hired when super fine detail and rigorous accuracy are a must, and when technical and animate subjects must come together.
Bruce has received a number of national awards for illustration, including the Society of Technical Communication international contest "Best of Show" award for the last three years.
Gage Academy of Art acknowledges the Coast Salish Peoples as the original inhabitants of this area and connecting waterways. We understand the land that Gage occupies is unceded territory and that today many Indigenous peoples live here and without their stewardship, we would not have access to this space. We honor the Coast Salish Peoples’ sovereignty, rights to self-determination, culture and ways of life. Since time immemorial, Indigenous peoples have called this territory their sacred land. We commit to learning, educating others and repairing the legacy of historically harmful relationships between non-Native and Native peoples in King County. In doing so, we will be honest, and recognize the experiences of Native peoples to include genocide, forced relocation, forced assimilation, and land theft. We also acknowledge Native peoples are survivors, present in today’s world, thriving. We encourage everyone here today to ask themselves: what can I do to support Indigenous communities?
In an effort to be transparent, Gage is contemplating this call to action and re-working how to best support Indigenous communities.
