Mike Mikottis is a lifelong artists and Midwest resident. After studying Fine Art briefly in college, he launched into a commercial art career as the Advertizing Manager at an industrial company. His responsibilities included commercial graphic design, photography, illustration and copy writing.
Switching back again to the Arts, Mike studied European-style faux finishing, wood- graining, marbling, and mural painting under French decorative painting masters.
Lately, he has begun working full time as a fine artist creating acrylic paintings on canvas in his unique abstract-realistic impressionistic style, featuring primarily nature, wildlife, still life landscape and fantasy subjects.
