George Macedo was born in Bangkok, Thailand, adopted as an orphan and brought to the United States. His interest in art became apparent around 4 years old when he would follow the step by step instruction of an artist drawing on a weekly television show. This attraction to drawing and painting continued through grade school and college where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Central Florida. After moving to Vermont nearly ten years ago, George is currently the Lead Designer/Illustrator and Supervisor of the Graphics Dept. at Maple Landmark in Middlebury.
