Michael’s colorful illustrations have filled the pages of over 20 children’s books. His first book was the popular M is for Mitten’ A Michigan ABC Book. In 2007, Michael was personally chosen by the President and Mrs. Bush to create a series of fifteen paintings to be featured in the White House Holiday Program. The original paintings were hung in the White House for the Christmas Celebration, and are now part of the permanent White House gallery. Michael was called upon again by the White House to hand-paint 1,000 Christmas ornaments for the President and Mrs. Bush to be used as personal gifts to friends and dignitaries.
