Mike was born in Tillamook Oregon and spent much of his
time on the northern Oregon coast, fishing the rivers and enjoying
the beautiful beaches.
He left Tillamook behind, moved to Portland to become a graphic
artist, but the Oregon coast, rivers, bays and backwaters were always
his favorite places to be.
Now in retirement, he has the time to devote to painting and
maybe trying to relive some of those childhood memories.
Mike is a member of the Oregon Society of Artists,
Lake Area Artists, and a subscriber member
of the Watercolor Society of Oregon.
