Fullerton graduated from Ontario College of Art in 1976. In 1993 and 1994, he served as artist-in-residence at Cape Dorset, and at Canadore College in North Bay. Fullerton has received awards for his work in contemporary painting, printmaking and sculpture. In 1991 he received the Juror's Award at the Boston Printmaker's Juried Exhibition, and in 1997 he received the Juror's Award in Sculpture at the CIM Centennial Art Competition.
Fullerton’s current body of work, Godot Will Not Be Coming Today, serves as a springboard of ideas for the artist and audience to investigate, rather than a narrative illustration of Samuel Beckett’s play “Waiting for Godot.” Existentialism and exploration of human nature are integral concepts in his work. Fullerton explores humanity’s ability to choose; existence versus essence; mystery, myths, and symbolism.
Fullerton has exhibited across Canada, England, Australia, Spain and Yugoslavia. Fullerton's works are in private and public collections including the Burnaby Art Gallery, Burnaby, BC; Oregon State University, Oregon, USA; Ontario College of Art & Design, Toronto, ON; University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON; and Markborough Properties, Halifax, NS
