American artist Richard "Mike" Michael was born in 1933 and has been drawing and painting since the late 1980s.
Mike told us...
I'm married with 2 children and 3 grandchildren, and I have been retired for three years. I have drawn much of my life, but never really done as much of it as I would like.
My hobbies are: playing Billiards and Chess, Art - especially painting portraits and landscapes in oil, playing the guitar, singing with a Barbershop Harmony Chorus, and also I have enjoyed years of Ballroom Dancing with my wife.
Now that I have retired, I hope to do much more artwork.
