Michael C. Swartzmiller Impressionist Artist 1951
DNA Signature Paintings
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 started as an escape from life but has slowly consumed my life; reading and watching TV has been replaced with drinking red wine and trying to emulate the painting styles of Monet and Matisse.
Creating art is very rewarding, not for monetary reasons, but the euphoric feeling of knowing that fellow human beings like my work enough to display in their home.
Art is an important part of life and can benefit individuals as well as benefit and define communities. I give back to my community as much as possible, especially with non-profits.
Please don't hesitate to contact me for any reason, I'd love to hear from you......Mike
