Mike has been creating since he can remember. His latest endeavor has involved communicating the depth of his environment. Since 2013, Mike has been working on creating a 3D view based on a toy he had as a kid called a View-Master. This has brought a deeper understanding of creating an illusion of depth in his standard paintings.
