As Juror, I selected “Corinthian”, shown above, to exhibit in the 2009 Tesserae: Art of Mosaics show in Long Beach, California.
and you can’t argue with this hot, oily Roman hunk…
Michael is gaining a reputation not only as a classicist working in both stone and smalti, but for his contemporary and captivating series of mosaic portraits “Heroes wth Bling” honoring San Francisco’s most notorious gender illusionists, that’s right, Drag Queens.
I LOVE this one:
Michael is a thoughtful, warm and generous teacher. Enjoy!
