Dorsey Dunton was born in Oakland and raised in Fresno, California. He attended Fresno High School and married his childhood sweetheart, Sidney Tancredy. He served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean war. A restless soul, Dorsey has worn many hats during his life—he’s been an insurance adjustor, an undercover investigator, a contractor, a pilot, a prison instructor, a realtor and deputy for the governor of California.
Art in some form has threaded its way through each of these endeavors. Each piece of Dorsey’s work is unique. Signed and numbered, his “Wood on Wheels” collection is a piece or part of all the trucks that fascinated him as a boy. Dorsey designs and hand builds his art at home, where he cares for Sidney, his wife of over 60 years, who suffered a debilitating stroke 13 years ago. Being a restless soul that is now grounded, Dorsey’s energy is now evident in his vehicles of the road.
