Born in Okinawa, Japan, Hirofumi Glover displayed an early talent for the arts, drawing inspiration from the visually stimulating cultures he experienced as a child living in the United States and Europe. He studied graphic design and photography in college before becoming an accomplished and well-rounded artist: first as a successful musician and instrument builder, and later as a skilled craftsm...an of custom furniture.
Hiro's passion for painting began as a happy accident when he decided to try the traditional American craft of making floor cloths. Self-taught, he experimented with acrylics on canvas and his early works were impressionistic abstracts with an emphasis on bold colors. Hiro's recent works are figurative paintings and Oregon landscapes. He makes his home in La Grande, Oregon.
