Michael Ireland has participated in the creative process for over forty years beginning with his studies at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Under the direction of master instructor Irving Shapiro, he began to explore the effects of light and color through transparent watercolor. He soon developed a passion for the medium that continued throughout his life and career. Today Michael is a nationally recognized painter as well as an accomplished creative director and graphic designer.

Michael’s painting style and technique challenges the scale and format associated with traditional transparent watercolor resulting in some of his recent works measuring up to over twenty feet in length. This process and approach has led to his artwork being placed in public and private collections throughout the country.

Affiliations and memberships include National Watercolor Society, The Society for the Arts in Healthcare and Chicago Artist Coalition

Also, Michael will be leading a workshop in October at The Peninsula School of Art in Door County.leaves
