Micheal Searngin's interest in the American Cowboy began at a young age on Olathe, Kansas where his grandfather taught him the heritage of the cattleman and rancher. His interest in painting began when his family moved overseas for six years and the family traveled throughout Europe.
began his art career in San Antonio, Texas in 1973. Time there influenced him to develop the rich colors and textures in his contemporary art with the fading heritage of the American Cowboy, Michael expresses these experiences to others through his art. His fluid acrylic paintings create unique imagery inspired by the rugged spirit so vividly seen in the west.
