You could never define art as art unless you let go your mind. I'm inspired by life. The beauty and the ugly, it's makes this world today. I've been creating practically all my life, but I lacked confidence early on. The older I got I began to express, but it still wasn't enough to push me forward. Then one day I began to paint. I feel free. I feel nothing. Imagine dancing in space, for a second, the imagination heals the journey. I'm Michael Whitsett, also known as Mike Melinoe. I'm a creative artist, and that ranges from music to, well now, visual art. This platform is allowing my dreams to come to and I'm ecstatic. From my paint brush to you, let's create.
