“I’m a painter, mostly.”

— Michael Divine

I am a self-taught artist. I love to paint. My art is a visual journey of what it is to be human. It’s informed by countless experiences, spiritual paths, sunsets and sunrises, people I’ve met, music I’ve heard, flowers and cathedrals.  

There is a continued creative lineage that spans the breadth of human history. Anyone who picks up a tool with which to express themselves becomes a part of that creative lineage. From our earliest cave paintings to the incorporation of 3 point perspective in the Renaissance through the retelling of our collective myths to the unfurling internal world illuminated by early 1900s Modern Art – from Kandinsky to Dali and others:  this is a story of the continued unlocking of the human psyche and the exploration of who we are, where we are from, and where we are going. Most importantly, it is a story what it is to be human in whatever particular time and place the artist is creating from. It’s my goal to add to that ever unfolding dialogue and share the expression of this now.

I live in Northern California with my wife, Violet, and our 4 cats and I paint everyday. Together we work towards co-creating a happier healthier world.
