About the Artist
Born and raised in the northeast, close to the coast, Michael developed a love of the water. Summers on Cape Cod made a lasting impression on him and he is still drawn back to scenic New England coast when painting.
Michael owned and operated a graphic design studio on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina for 16 years. While there he sold numerous watercolors as originals and limited edition prints in the local galleries.
He moved with his family to Maggie Valley, North Carolina which is in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. Michael continued his work mostly in oils of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
After 15 years in the mountains Michael and family moved to the birthplace of his wife, Tammy. Appling, Georgia, is a small rural community in eastern Georgia. There he continues his fine art works while still engaging in graphic design and farming.
