Born in Detroit, Michigan in 1963. Raised in the Northwest Lower Peninsula on Norman Road in Arcadia, and now resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan not far from the downtown area on the South East side. At a young age Michael's father encouraged him to draw. From there his artistical life has been influenced by artists like Jon Nagy, Frank Frazetta, Hans Giger, Gwen Frostic, Bob Ross, and many others. Michael does occasionally sketch still life, but prefers to sketch from the mind.
