Michael Welch

Born in Sacramento, CA

Lives & works in West Sonoma, Country CA


Through inquiring into my personal role as an artist, over time I have learned to trust in the varied and unpredictable ways my work manifests itself.
Although my skills have evolved since childhood,
my communion with form and color is seemingly

consistent and unchanged.
I create my images on a 24" iMac, using Photoshop as my platform. I paint with the brush tool and sometimes incorporate photo elements and acrylic varnishes and gels.
