Hi, my name is Mike....
  It took a long time to realize that I was expressing my subconscious through my paintings. It’s taken  years to trust the process. Each painting starts out with some vague idea of what I ‘d like it to be, but ends up being what it is supposed to.  Many  artists paint this way, but It’s been a fascinating journey discovering the process on my own.
  My paintings always turn into something going on in my life that I’ve consciously ignored or have not given the attention to that I should have. Everyone has heard of exploring the self conscious through ink blots, I only know that painting this way is real for me. I’ve experienced it time and time again and the more I trust the process, the clearer things become. The clearer things become the better I feel.
  I try to get as many people to paint like this  as I can. Especially those who are lost or going through hard times in their lives.. Each time they have expressed leaving my studio having had a release and saying they feel better. I experience the same thing. I've discovered many things about myself it is why I continue to paint this way.
 

Influences

 When I was eleven years old, Gerhard Meling stayed with us in Naples. He taught me about cubism and to express my imagination no matter how abstract it was. Growing up in Naples, I watched Paul Arsenault paint. How he paints the water, landscapes and architecturally is noticed in my sketches through out my life. Between Paul and Gehart, I became the artist I am today. They taught me that it's ok to express myself as I see it.  I've traveled to many places and studied legends such as Picasso, Botticelli and Monet,.  I've been to the museums all over France, Spain and Italy. I've traveled to where they painted, studied the light,  and the atmosphere of the towns. In those ways I  identified with there works.  I paint by mistake, not by numbers. It's created my own unique style that you'll see in all  my paintings and drawings.
Imagination is hard to explain, it's harder to understand someone else's. When a painting describes a feeling, emotion or event that's happened in someones life, it makes the insanity of each piece worth while. Paintng this way I experess myself with pure emotion and experience without having to think of words. It's helped me to understand myself and my experieces through out my life.
