During Mike’s career of more than 50 years as a professional artist, his first passion has been portraiture. Mike loves to paint from life for his character studies, but his formal portraits are usually painted from photographs taken by him personally or by a professional photographer under Mike’s direction. Mike paints in a traditional representational style combining the best of realistic, classical and impressionistic methods. He takes commissions for corporate and family portraits, as well as for landscapes and other subjects. Mike can do a portrait as an oil painting or pastel painting according to his client’s preference.

Mike is located in New Mexico, and receives commissions from throughout the country. He is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America (PSA), Plein Air Painters of New Mexico (PAPNM), Pastel Painters of New Mexico (PSNM); and has been an active member of the Portrait Society of America for many years. One of his portraits was featured in the book, 100 Ways to Paint People and Figures, published by International Artist Magazine.
