Doug Michalski is an award-winning landscape and wildlife painter based in beautiful North Port, FL. Growing up in Lockport, NY, Doug discovered his knack for art at a young age. As an adult, he inspired a generation of students during his 32-year tenure as a middle school art teacher.
After retiring to Florida, Doug graduated from his original medium of watercolors to his latest love, acrylics. His signature bold style is created by working with a limited palette of 3 colors, using black and white to achieve light and contrast. He is now a proud member of National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society, the Punta Gorda Visual Arts Center, Light Chasers Plein Air Artists' Group of Sarasota, and Punta Gorda Peace River Painters.
He currently lives and plays in the beautiful beaches of Florida with his wife, three children, and three grandchildren.
