John Wilkes, and education at Mercy College of Detroit [M.A. in Waldorf Ed.]. His work has been installed or shown in Michigan, New York, Massachusetts, California, England, and Sweden. He is a co-founder and core faculty member of the Alkion Center at Hawthorne Valley, Ghent, NY. - for studies in anthroposophy, art, and Waldorf teacher education [www.alkioncenter.org].
