Michael works primarily with water-based (acrylic and watercolor); however, he uses anything he can get his hands on in the studio. Oil paints, pencil, shoe polish, chalk, epoxy, markers. If it works for the effect I'm after, it's on the canvas.

I have been joyfully and creatively expressing myself since I was a child,drawing in the mud and hammering blocks of wood together in our back yard at our family home then in Terre Haute, Indiana. From those long ago days it has been a wonderful journey of learning, teaching, inspiring, and creating. A cycle that continues in my life today. The variety of Art processes and techniques that were introduced in obtaining my Bachelor of Science in Art Education Degree, opened my artistic expressions to all different kinds of media. I love to draw and sketch ideas out to near completion but the camera became my major tool of sorting through visual contemplations. See her art...
