FYI. As it happens, there is another artist with a name very similar to my own but whose work is clearly his own. He is Glen Michaels, a graduate of Yale and an instructor at the world-renowned Cranbrook Academy of Art, in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
Both of us lived in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan during the 1970s. His wonderful work was widely commissioned, honored, published and discussed and he often gave lectures at various area venues.
