Brejcha was born in Ellsworth, Kansas on January 30, 1942.  Grew up in Holyrood, Kansas. Attended Fort Hays State Univ. completing his undergraduate degree in 1964 and a Masters of

Littleton.  From 1969-72, while working on his MFA, he taught at Edgewood College in Madison, WI.  In 1972, Brejcha took a position as Assistant Prof. of Art at Tusculum College in Greenville, TN then returned to Kansas in 1976, to open the glass program at the Univ. of Kansas, Lawrence.
