Following service in World War II as a paratrooper. While in Italy he was able to view works by Michelangelo, Giotto, and Caravaggio. After the war Ivey spent three years at the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco, where he undertook serious study of modern art with such influential instructors as Clyfford Still, Mark Rothko, Ad Reinhardt, David Park, and Clay Spohn. Friends and fellow students included noted painters Richard Diebenkorn and Frank Lobdell. Ivey was acquainted with Mark Tobey, Morris Graves, and other members of the \"Northwest School\", and was close friends with Richard Gilkey and many of the Skagit Valleyā€“based painters who were considered by some critics to represent a second generation of the Northwest School. However, his deeply personal style of abstraction showed more of the influence of Still, Rothko, and others he studied under at the California School of Fine Arts. Listings wanted.
