Known as Don Stacy, the expressionist artist grew up in New Jersey as a first-generation American of Irish descent. Shortly after high school, he served in the United States Navy during World War II. After the war, Stacy studied art at the renowned Art Students League. It was there he met his wife, Bernice. The couple traveled and trained in France on the acclaimed Fullbright grant. During the 1960s, Stacy taught at the Museum of Modern Art and the School of Visual Art. Bernice and Don spent the remaining years together in a studio living space in Manhattan and held art classes in their Stacy Studio Workshop.
