Mike Cable creates art to express his inner self. Photography is his therapy and his way of escaping into another world. He loves to hunt for hidden works of art—things never given a second look by the average person. What fascinates him about his work is how many ways it can be interpreted. While he may see one thing, someone else may see something completely different.
What sets Cable apart from others in his field are his life experiences. He grew up in a small town and spent most of his time in the woods playing and using his imagination. Though he didn't know it at the time, these early years formed who he is as an artist.
Cable is a completely self-taught artist who first picked up a camera as an adult. He always excelled in art while in grade and high school. In high school, he had a great art teacher who allowed him the freedom to do what he liked, which at the time was geometric art. His training really stems from life experiences.
