Mike LaFleur, a West Texas native, discovered his love for art at the age of six when he first painted with his grandmother, and has continued to create beautiful works of art ever since. From the winter torn pueblos of the Taos Valley to the tattered flags of the lone star state, his subject matter remains traditional despite his modern style. His use of acrylic paint and lime dust texture creates a true look of depth that has a lively effect within his work. His vivid colors are contemporary and push the boundaries of what has previously been deemed technically correct. This ambition and vision has guided his distinguished career and has a reputation of unique and diverse art.
Although currently residing in the Texas Panhandle with his three kids, Mike participates in many major art festivals in the southern U.S. each year and is showcased in several galleries in New Mexico and Colorado.
