The camera and photography have been my primary means of creative expression for the past 35 years. During this period I photographed extensively all over the world in conjunction with the travels required by my careers. I retired in 2000 which gave me the time necessary to explore other forms of art such as drawing and painting.
Today I use various mediums including oil, watercolor, gouache and ink. My paintings and drawings involve primarily man-made subjects however also animals, people and landscapes. I have received various awards and display my work in numerous local venues.
I maintain a Facebook page facebook.com/mikebergenart and a website mikebergenart.com in order to showcase my more recent work and discuss my processes.
