Michael Arnold About

"Art for me is a creative release, therefore I have no boundaries in my work. I work on what moves me spiritually, visually and creatively." I enjoy many different styles including impressionism, pop art, abstract expressionism, naturalism, post-impressionism, art deco and contemporary. All of these styles influence my work, but do not define my style. I primarily work in acrylics, but have produced works in pastels, graphite, charcoal colored pencils and ink. 1 comment

Biography

In the first grade, my drawings earned notice and my family encouraged my artistic expression by enrolling me into charcoal drawing and ceramics classes. I took sculpture classes in middle school. In high school I took commercial art classes, created artwork for the school newspaper, designed the cover and inside pages of the creative writing magazine and helped build the backdrop for the junior-senior prom. Following high school, my art took a back seat as my wife of 32 years and I raised three sons. Eventually, we started our own cabinet company, which reawakened my creative juices. I expanded my creative avenues as a freelance writer for the local newspaper. I eventually left the cabinet business and embarked on my current career as a journalist. In 2004, I returned to school with a goal of earning a bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary studies. While earning my Associates Degree at the local community college, I began taking art classes again and earned the visual arts award at graduation. I currently balance art with online studies at Florida State University and a full time job as a managing editor at the Citrus County Chronicle.
