Born in Flint during the depression years, Roy attended art school in Detroit on scholarship, won another scholarship to Cranbrook Academy of Art, then attended Wayne State University. He served in the Army (1940-1945) and was commissioned to paint two murals in the Asiatic Pacific War.

In peace time he went into business for himself in display advertising. After retiring in 1979 he enjoyed a long-awaited career in Watercolor.

With this exhibit at Genesys curated by his daughter Robin St. Onge, Roy finally has a solo show!
