Hi!! I'm Mike Morris and art and people is not only my gig but my lifestyle.
To keep a long story short and a short story even shorter, my life has been maximum chaos in which a Hollywood movie screen wouldn't serve it justice. My imagination and creativity is the passion that has kept me going! I taught myself at very early age how to draw and illustrate and years back, I finally made the jump to painting and graphic design. Meanwhile coming out of Sin City, Las Vegas, making pit stops in the U.S. Navy as a corpsman stationed at the historical landmark, Pearl Harbor and with the marines at Camp Pendleton.
Shortly after, I enrolled at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) for 2 years in Orange County, then stayed for another 2 to earn a bachelor's degree in business management up in Los Angeles. By sheer luck I crossed paths with Stephanie Chambers (another Paint Nite artist/instructor) and I've been doing the paintnite life ever since!
I've noticed the stress and tension in the world is constantly growing by the minute and expressing myself through art has been a savior and I feel it's truly a special thing to be able to guide people into finding serenity in their own creative expression at each of my events, all while having fun and being entertained. So cheers!!! And I hope to see you soon!!
