Lured by the splendor of the Hawaiian Islands, Mike Carroll moved from Chicago to Lana`i to pursue his life-long passion for art and nature. His original oil paintings and prints celebrate Hawaii and invite the viewer to explore her enchanting beauty.
Mike double-majored in Art and Biology at Western Maryland College, earning a B.A. with Honors in Art. He then attended The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where he was awarded a Master’s degree in Medical Illustration from the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine.
Mike enjoyed a successful twenty-year career as a professional artist in Chicago. During that time he received national recognition for both his medical and non-medical art and had work featured in the prestigious PRINT Regional Design Atlas and Communication Arts magazines.
Since moving to Lana`i, Mike’s work has been juried into major competitions such as Art Maui and all three statewide Schaefer Portrait Challenges. He is one of 15 artists across Hawaii to be selected as a Signature Member of the Plein Air Painters of Hawaii.
In February 2006, Mike was among 25 artists from across the nation to be invited to the first Maui Invitational Plein Air PaintOut. Subsequently, he was tapped as a member of the Invitational’s sponsoring organization, the Islanders, a group of nine plein air painters recording the life and landscape of Hawaii. He has participated in each annual Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational since 2006.
Since 2004, Mike has been selected as “Artist in Residence” for the Seattle Study Club’s annual Symposia. In this capacity he has exhibited paintings of Symposium locales such as Laguna Beach, Cancun and the Yucatan, and Carlsbad, California.
