Born in New Boston, IL on Nov. 20, 1873, George Dennison settled into a studio-home at Cathedral Oaks in the hills above Alma, CA about 1910 and remained there until his death on March 26, 1966.

After serving as chief of horticulture at the Panama Pacific Exposition of 1915, he turned his attention to sculptured enamels.  He and his partner Frank Ingerson were versatile artists.  As co-workers for 65 years, they were painters, gold and silversmiths, weavers, leather workers, horticulturists, and interior decorators.
