About this Artist
"My father immigrated from Scotland, so I'm a first generation American. I have been a painter and sculptor all my life, beginning in abstract work, and arriving here, wherever 'here' is now. Life is good!"
Mike Smith finds inspiration for his subjects and colors in the gardens and rural settings of his home and studio in the Pacific Northwest.
While pets wander through many of his watercolors, loosely based on the artist's life and gardens, several of his equally successful works depict more exotic fauna. Giraffes, an elephant, a lion, draw on Smith's profound artistic experience and spiritual delight in the forms of nature.
Infusing his work with his fine sense of celebration, Smith creates works of great charm and visual excitement.
It takes time to make great artwork. Most of the pieces we offer are created one at a time by the artist, and shipped directly to you from the artist’s studio.
