Mike has done astounding work with concrete, steel, plastic, wood and stone. His architectural designs can be found in the United States and in Spain. Over the past forty years, Mike has developed a visual theme for his art. He is working on a piece that he hopes will carry this theme far beyond that which can be imagined. He loves to master the three dimensional object forms. He had used fiberglass in some of his pieces, but after a tornado destroyed some of his work he switched to concrete for durability. Mike’s architectural work is monumental and can be found in Taragona, Spain, and in the Department of Transportation building in Springfield, Illinois as well as other cities in the country. In 1974 Mike competed internationally and won the honor or building an architectural piece in Barcelona, Spain. This was an amazing feat that would keep him encouraged for a lifetime. With these and many more accolades to his credit, Mike has remained humble. His pleasure comes from his artistic work. His confidence is increased to unmatched limits by the popularity of his specially made constructed pieces.
