About Michael

Michael is from Columbus, OH, and is currently living in New York and London. He has been teaching painting at the Art Academy of London, England.
“I am a full time painter interested in making highly crafted and unique portraits of the landscape”
This exhibition, “Places”, is two groups of work; the first, the portrait landscapes and the second, the isolated objects within those landscapes. Michael’s landscapes start with the shape or general silhouette and then he figures out the specific character of that shape, working from outside in and from general to specific.
