About Michael Sampson
Born in Boston, MA , 1969. Grew up in Rockport, MA. Attended Montserrat College of Art 1988-1993. Lives and works in Ithaca, NY since 1998. Painting for over twenty years. I find shapes and images from my figure drawings, and shadow/silhouette drawings. I like to start with representational forms so I have a foundation to work out composition, color, and texture in a natural way that is expressive, free, and abstract.
