I have always been fascinated by the interplay of light values. From early childhood with my father's help, I started drawing and coloring objects from my surroundings and Disney characters, with the early dream of working for Walt Disney. As a teen, I discovered the paintings and sculptures of the great European Masters. This revelation led me to dabbling in oil painting, and the realization that I needed training in all facets of Art. Though working 40 hours a week, I entered the night class system at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, attending three nights a week, plus Saturdays. Studying life drawing, pastel, charcoal, ink use, along with watercolor rendering, design and composition. Work related promotions and military service lead me away from my artist's dream. I found my teacher/mentor, Professor Lipp at the Paier College of Art. Thankfully, at those night classes my painting gift was brought to bloom. Leaving the corporate world, I returned to the Midwest to pursue an artist's dream. There followed years of awards, shows and a deep appreciation of my painting's impact on people. I try to create oil paintings to stir emotions. With that in mind, I invite you to view my work and explore your own deep inner feelings. Michael's Artistic Awards and recognition; include multible "Best of Show', "Best Oil Painting", the "People's Choice". State of Michigan "Award of Recognition", NEA Art-Train "86" exhibitor/demonstrator/Michigan, One man shows, exhibits, invitational gallery shows, and paintings in private collections including a Maritime Museum and a Catholic Cathedral.
