Luce Artist Biography

Born in Honduras, Derek Webster moved to Belize when he was around ten years old. After moving to the United States in 1964, he joined the Marines and traveled widely before settling in Chicago. He is an enthusiastic gardener and built a fence in the form of an elaborate sculpture to stop his poodle from getting into the garden. Webster works in the basement of his home, in a tiny space next to the boiler, surrounded by his colorful totems, dancing ladies, and monsters.
