A Little More About Mike

Mike lives and works in Portland, Maine with his wife Courtney and son, Austin. He is found either at studio or home with a cat or an infant in his lap. A native Northern New Yorker, Lewis is the son of a Forest Ranger and a school teacher. He spent the majority of his childhood believing he would be an engineer, but decided last minute before attending university that he would be an artist instead. He hasn't regretted a second of it. In addition to art, Mike is a known biblio- and audio- phile.
