Micah is an artist living in Portland, Oregon with his wife and two kids. His work ranges from Portland cityscapes and bridges, to portraits and figurative work. He particularly loves playing with expressive color and form. Micah moved to Portland in 2003 and found inspiration in the bridges and buildings of it’s cityscape.
Throughout his schooling he concentrated on drawing and painting figures and portraits. He found that the true likeness of his subjects was not achieved by copying their appearances realistically, but rather by exaggerating their features to really capture the core essence.
Applying the same expressive, exaggerated technique, he created portraits of buildings, full of character, and added an almost living quality to the stationary bodies of bridges. Micah has since regained his passion for the figure and now fully concentrates on capturing their personality through color and form.
