About Michael Creese

Michael Creese I am a painter and illustrator from Pittsburgh, PA.

I was born in Chicago, Illinois, and studied art at Carnegie Mellon University, where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

I paint in the oil impasto style, a technique used in art where paint is laid thickly on canvas, leaving visible brush (or palette knife) strokes. When dry, impasto imparts a lustrous, painterly surface, with vibrant and mesmerizing colors.

Over the years I have tried my hand at many different themes and a wide variety of art materials, but I always seem to find myself back at the easel with oils on the palette. Oil paints are a true delight to work with and they seem to express themselves effortlessly, as if on their own!
