    Hello, my name is Michael Thomas Orwick.

     A beautiful and relaxing local wetlands area near my studio.

    As a native Oregonian, I cannot separate my art from my love of the Pacific Northwest.  The coast, mountains, and meadows, each infused with mysterious light and atmosphere, weave narratives into their settings.  I am inspired to tell their stories with my paint and brush strokes.  Inspiration comes so naturally here. 

    As a painter, the effects of light and atmosphere are what I remember about a location and what inspires me most.  Light transforms the ordinary or even beautiful into the exceptional. My quest is to capture these fleeting moments and help people see things again through new eyes.
