Mike is a mainly self taught artist born and raised in Calgary. From a young age he has been interested in drawing, painting, coloring and building things. In school his favorite subjects were always art class and wood shop. Most of the paintings done by Mike are in acrylic, He doesn't mind working on any type of substrate, whether it be canvas, wood, paper, metal, cloth, or anything.
In the recent years he has been working with screen printing, to make custom shirts and clothing, as well as other prints. Please ask me about my shirt printing business - New Favourite Shirts, and grab one of my business cards for my other 'artistic services', that I provide! In years past Mike traveled to Yukon where his Uncle taught him about wood carving, lathe work and instrument making. Although most of his time is used painting, other interests include graphic design, cooking, hockey and the guitar.
