Michael Creese was born in Chicago, Illinois, and studied art at Carnegie Mellon University, where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. He paints in the oil impasto style, a technique used in art where paint is laid thickly on canvas, leaving visible brush (or palette knife) strokes. When dry, impasto provides a great deal of texture to the finished painting. He also works with several other mediums in addition to oils.

    I feel the movement of the water and hear the gentle swish of its tail. Your artwork is very inspiring, Michael.
