Roger Moy considers himself a Chicagoan. Originally from the beach towns of Southern California, he moved to Chicago in 1973 to attend the School of The Art Institute of Chicago where he received a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1975.
While pursuing a career as a working artist and college instructor he took a 34- year detour into the bar business for both financial reasons and out of curiosity.
Roger now lives in Chicago with his wife, Deb, and their Doberman, Ruby. Roger produces art at his home studio, teaches art and conducts art therapy sessions in two Chicago treatment centers.
