“The story of the American Dream is the history of the American Home, and each home tells a story. Our beautiful American homes expand the American Dream by adapting regional building traditions to modern living. Each of our homes considers its place, its purpose, and the family who lives within it, and each house acknowledges the universal desire for comfort, ease, affordability, and beauty.” Michael received his training in classical painting, sculpture, and architecture, and has worked for over thirty years in each of these professions. He brings to his designs an understanding of the best that has been done in Western Civilization's 3,000 year tradition. He designed the New American Home 2011, debuting at the National Association of Home Builders Show in Orlando. His most significant sculptural commissions include The History of Texas at Texas Rangers Ball Park, Arlington, Texas, the largest US frieze of the 20th Century; numerous portrait busts for the Library of Congress, The Supreme Court Building, and other public buildings. His recent statues include General Eisenhower and The Shipbuilder, both in Alexandria, Virginia. His specialty is relief portraits and fine medals. And his painting, sculpture, and architectural drawings are represented in over 250 private and public collections. Michael has taught art and art history at art schools, colleges, and universities and lectured at the National Gallery of Art.
