ABOUT THE ARTIST   Douglas Orr Zeigler was born in Dixon, Illinois and attended The University of Chicago and The Art Institute of Chicago (BFA). He studied drawing, painting and design with several European emigre faculty who emphasized the traditional disciplines. In this rich environment, he developed an approach to an individual vision which is grounded in representation, but also taps expressive, spontaneous impulses—and yields to immediate responses of color, line, form and texture. Zeigler works from his studio in Manakin Sabot, Virginia.


The artist accepts commissions for a wide variety of artwork: portraits, landscapes and coastal subjects, marine scenes including boat portraits—virtually anything is possible. Through a step-by-step process employing preliminary sketches and color studies, a successful result is assured.
