About

the artist

Mike never colored the pictures in coloring books.  He just drew his own pictures in the blank spaces inside the covers of said coloring books.  Later he was introduced to sketch books and blank paper.  Also watercolor and oil painting. And later power tools.  But more on that later...   Mike loves to bring his ridiculous ideas to life on surfaces and spaces he creates from random stuff.  Whether that's old cabinet doors, or a shadow box made from scrap wood, or any blank space that can be transformed into vividly colorful scenes

Is This

Art?

Yeah.  I don't know either.   

What is art though.   Is it the creative expression of ideas that can be shared?  Is it the physical manifestation of inspiration?  Or is it something we just have to do?  To use the skills and talents we have to make something beautiful with our bare hands if necessary.   

It is necessary.
