Here’s a bit about Michael:
“I have been riding bicycles since childhood and drawing pictures just as long. Growing up near Boston, my father was an illustrator so art has always been in my life… and cycling has always been a passion”.
Michael’s passion for cycling has been going strong for 30 years and it is his primary motivation as an artist. With a love for turn-of-the-century art posters Michael is bridging the gap between the old and new. With whimsy, charm and an inside knowledge of cycling his graphic and powerful art is uniquely recognisable.
Prior to being the “Cycling Artist”, Michael worked as an Executive Creative Director and Art Director, creating images and advertising campaigns for Fortune 500 companies for more than 35 years. Throughout his career Michael has worked in large advertising agencies like Leo Burnett in Chicago, and agencies in Boston and Miami.
Michael lives in Illinois on the “Cheese Border” and does most of his riding in southern Wisconsin. This will be Michael’s first trip to Australia and he’s already practicing “G’day mate”.
