________________________________

ARTIST STATEMENT:

I am a visual artist and my style combines digital techniques, or what I like to call digital journeys, with photography manipulation to create one-of-a-kind art designs. Many of my designs affirm the dynamic and spiritual essence of the human experience or capture the simple beauty in everyday things that can sometimes be missed in our busy lives.

MICHAEL'S STORY:

Boston Michael's story is one of courage and inspiration.

Michael feels that, even through personal struggles of years past, he has been on a journey of learning and healing throughout his life. In recent years his path has taken dramatic and unexpected turns, producing experiences which have greatly challenged his physical body while opening up new pathways for his spiritual and emotional healing.

In 2007, Michael was very active, having just started his own business as a licensed general contractor, when he collapsed suddenly one evening from a brain hemorrhage. He was rushed into intensive care where doctors determined the hemorrhage to be caused by a ruptured aneurysm.

He was in a coma for 5 days and doctors did not expect him to survive it, however Michael's will to live was amazingly strong and he pulled through it and lived to tell the story. For the past few years, he has been in extended recovery from the brain injury, dealing with a number of long-term after effects and other health complications, but at the same time, grateful to be alive.

As part of his therapy, Michael began to compose new music and create newly inspired artwork. He felt a calling to create music and art for healing purposes, with the intention of passing on healing energy and love to others through his music and art.

But in 2012, Michael has again been challenged with shocking medical news that he has Prostate Cancer and advanced Liver Cancer. He is gathering his strength and courage to overcome this new challenge so that he can recover and have more time with his loved ones, see his grand children grow up, and continue his personal work in this life of creating music and art that shares love and healing with others.

Michael has a colorful background as a life-long musician and visual artist who grew up in a big family in Revere, MA, a suburb of Boston. He came of age in the Boston rock scene and played for many years in a number of bands, including his own band called The Mix. He is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter who feels that music comes from his soul and connects him to the Universe.

He has been referred to as a "renaissance man", because in addition to his artistic passions, he also spent time working as a chef, computer technician, and in most recent years as a licensed building contractor. Michael felt a yearning to learn and pursued college studies later in life, graduating from college in his forties, with high honors, while working full-time and recording his first solo music CD. He developed a love for science and history, and earned two associate degrees in Music Theory and Psychology, as well as a certification in Desktop Publishing.

After spending most of his life in his hometown of Boston, Michael migrated to California for about 11 years, where friends affectionately nicknamed him "Boston Michael". Soon after moving there he met Alison, the woman who would become his soulmate and loving companion through the odyssey of life.

In the Fall of 2011, Michael and his significant other/wife Alison felt they were too far away from family and relocated back to the east coast, near Washington DC, so that they could both be closer to family.

Michael beat the odds a few years ago when he survived a brain hemorrhage and he is optimistic about overcoming cancer and healing on an even deeper level.

Michael is grateful to have a loving support system of family and friends to help him through this journey.
