After retiring from teaching high school physical education and coaching football for 43 years, Mike decided to pursue activities that were less demanding and more relaxing.
He decided to try Yoga, Tai Chi, and painting watercolors. He enrolled in a watercolor painting class at Seminole Community College. Instantly he became intrigued with the flowing, translucent qualities of painting with watercolors.
Mike continued his interest in watercolors by taking several classes and workshops provided by prominent local artists.
He began painting with art groups at the Winter Springs Senior Center and Casselberry Art House. He then joined the Central Florida Watercolor Society and The Sanford Seminole Art Association.
Mike has developed a unique style by using liquid watercolors and various techniques which add interest to his art.
His award winning paintings have been exhibited at galleries and art venues in Central Florida.
