My name is Michael Cross and I am a self- taught artist. I am a bit of a late bloomer in regards to art. My entire life I have had an internal drive to create and find my inner voice. When I began drawing and painting, that energy was given an outlet and I have never looked back. I am a bit of a dichotomy being drawn to the expressiveness and power of abstract painting as well as the detail work of figurative charcoal/pencil drawing. I want the viewer to have a deep, visceral reaction to my work. My drawings and paintings are created through my five senses, heart and gut. Art moves me in ways that are sometimes hard to put into words. This has allowed me to develop a second voice for emotion and passion.
Thank you for taking the time to peruse my art. Please feel free to give me feedback as to your thought and feelings.
