A LETTER FROM A ROLLINS ART
"It has been a number of years since I knew
Mike as a young student at Rollins College. I
recall him clearly, however, and remember him
especially as a student whose artistic interests
were focused on portrait work. His early
interest and ability in portraiture was such that it
comes as no surprise to me that he has gone on
to establish himself as a professional portrait
artist. He appears to have developed a
distinctive style in this genre of art in the years
since he left Rollins, and produced an impressive
body of work. I know he is deeply committed to
his work with the human figure, and I wish him
well and offer my encouragement as he seeks to
deepen and expand his abilities in this challenging
mode of expression."
