michael willett Art has always been a part of Michael Willet’s life. He recognized at an early age that he had an affinity for drawing in charcoal and chalk pastel. Through practice and a love for learning he has honed his skills over the years. He prefers to let the subject matter define the media he uses, but likes most to paint with oil. Michael graduated with a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University department of Painting and Printing, and resides and works as an artist in Richmond, VA.
“I believe art and creativity is not magical nor mysterious. It is hard work, concentration, and skill. I do not work with a favorite medium. I let the piece itself decide what medium is best to use, and nothing is off limits.“
