Mike Phelps

Mike Phelps, like most artists, can trace his  love for art to an early age.  He was born in   Los Angeles California and raised in the Pacific Northwest, where art programs were prevalent at every level of education.  Mike puts a great deal of realism in his paintings, but with a spark of color, yet maintains a painterly effect. His works evoke memories of bye-gone days and the beauty of outdoor majesty.  His goal for every painting is to draw the viewer into the “peaceful calm” that inspired him.  Mike is a landscape painter who enjoys “Plein-air” events. Recently retired from ministry, he and his wife Lynn now reside in Augusta, Missouri. He can be found teaching watercolor, acrylics,  and oil painting techniques to various age groups
