June Artist of the Month: Michael David Sorensen

Michael David Sorensen brings watercolors to life with his vibrant, detailed style. Born in 1981, this Vancouver, Washington native has been painting since age 12 when his grandparents gave him a watercolor set for Christmas. As soon as he could hold a pencil, Michael began drawing in an effort to compete with his older brother, Dan, and his dad. His father made a living for several years as a professional artist, blowing glass, so when it came time to homeschool Michael and Dan, their dad became the art teacher. Michael was home schooled all but one grade through school. After graduating from high school, Michael went on to Clark College and took every art class he could fit into his schedule. He met several art instructors who challenged and encouraged his creative development. Michael was also fortunate to study under the late, internationally known watercolorist, Zoltan Szabo. His dad continues to be available for critiques.

As an avid hiker and camper, Michael loves to travel and explore all God’s creation. Many of his paintings are inspired by road trips with his brother. They are currently working toward their goal of seeing every National Park in the U.S. and Canada.

Michael’s first award was Clark County Fair’s Grand Prize at the young age of 13. He has won two McCordic art scholarships, four Southwest Washington Watercolor Society “People’s Choice” awards and both the “People’s Choice” and “Best Watercolor” awards at the 2005 Paint the Gorge Plein Air Art Show in Troutdale, Oregon.
