Born in Texarkana, Texas, Duke Windsor served in the U.S. Marine Corps as a combat illustrator and drill instructor. After leaving the service, Windsor was a freelance illustrator and rodeo cowboy, competing in bull-riding, bare back and steer wrestling. He subsequently studied classical voice at San Diego State University, later performing with the San Diego Opera Chorus. Duke maintains his passion for music as a singer-songwriter and guitar player. An avid practitioner of the martial arts, Duke owned and operated a martial arts studio for seven years, eventually achieving the rank of 4th Dan Black Belt.
Windsor’s Urbanscapes have been exhibited and received awards at juried exhibitions, group shows and corporate venues in San Diego and Southern California, and they are held in many private collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. He has produced portrait commissions and military historical works. Windsor works in a variety of mediums including pastel, oil, acrylic, watercolor, linocut block prints and, most recently, terracotta sculpture. His artistic breadth ranges from plein air to abstract.
