Though painting all his life, Michael Kuseske began his professional career selling his paintings full time in 2001. Born and raised in Minnesota, Michael received his BA in education from Concordia University in St. Paul and then continued his art training at the University of California, Santa Barbara. " I learned how to be creative at Concordia, I learned how to paint at UCSB" he says.
Michael paints primarily large floral paintings but in a new and unique way. He concentrates on the sculptural form and color of the flower, increasing the contrast and shadow effects to add drama and excitement to each painting.
Michael lives with his wife, Judy in Royal Palm Beach, Florida but travels across the US in the summer participating in art festival.
