About Me

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Although I love WV; I was born about a hundred years too soon and 4000 miles west of Paris.  I would love to have been in the 19th century witnessing the Impressionist art movement.

My fantasy art lunch would include Van Gogh, Matisse and Picasso.

Art has always been a part of my life from teaching elementary art classes in the early 70's to being a principal in an Arts-Intergrated Charter School in Baden, PA.

Painting as a temporary escape from life has slowly consumed my life; reading and watching TV has been replaced with red wine and putting paint to canvas.

 Please don't hesitate to contact me for any reason ......Mike

 "PAINTERLY IMPRESSIONIST"      My paintings reflect the application of the paint as well as my interpretation of the subject.

Art Instructor for the Hancock County Arts Council.

I also donate my time to teach art classes as fundraisers for local non-profit organizations.
