The adventures of Maugre

In the 1980’s, I started to sign my visual art as “Maugre.”  It’s a combination between the first three letters of my first name and of my last name.

I later found out it was an actual word.  My favorite meaning: “…to withstand in a defiant manner.”

When I showed my work in France in 1996, they gave me an accent to put over the “e” in Maugre.

A year ago, a large archival site of my work came up.  It’s sponsored by my dayjob:  the library of the University of Detroit Mercy.

Many of my works and adventures are chronicled herein:
