Born in Minneapolis, Massey received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. His urban landscape paintings have incorporated a modern, geometric approach. In this piece, the subject is the home of Liza Leigh Kiwus and her husband, who moved to Marcy-Holmes in the fall of 1990 and got married in this house in 1991. They met Massey through neighbors and commissioned him to paint their home for their first wedding anniversary. They lived happily in this house for 23 years, and the painting now hangs in the front hall of their new home, a reminder of great times while living in Marcy-Holmes.
