Prior to founding his stained glass studio Dave was a business consultant and college business administration professor for nearly 20 years at schools including Louisiana State University at Baton Rouge, DePaul University, University of Illinois at Chicago and Wheaton College.

While teaching and consulting in promotion management and related graphic arts Dave established David Wixon & Associates, Inc., in suburban Chicago to help firms with their marketing needs. A series of projects that resulted in the used of original stained glass in signs and advertising artwork created by Dave provided the impetus to develop his passion for stained glass into a business endeavor.

By associating himself with other highly qualified expert craftspeople for a rigorous training in architectural art glass and studio operation Dave expanded David Wixon & Associates, Inc., also known as Wixon Art Glass, into a full-service, full-time professional stained glass studio. It has since served clients nationwide since 1982.

Dave’s philosophy in running his studio is that “It is nice to be able to make nice things for nice people”. He is involved in every aspect of all his projects but also has the resources of other expert associates available to assist on specialized aspects of your project as needed.

In 2015 Dave relocated his studio to Peoria, Arizona, in suburban Phoenix where he is continuing to provide the same high quality stained glass services for which he is well known.
