Mike Mahon

Mike MahonMike paints from what he knows best: the colors and people of Texas, Northern New Mexico, and Mexico. His landscapes, portraits, and slice-of-life vignettes depict a taste for the unusual scenes, expressions, and moments that most of us miss. His impressionistic style adds depth and a surprising realism of light and shadow to his paintings.

Recently emerging from a successful career as the owner of a commercial art and photography studio for 24 years, Mike is now pouring his many skills into a full-time fine art career. Notably, he has been honored to know and study under several internationally recognized artists including Ben Konis (pastel & oil), Kim English (oil), Judi Betts (watercolor) John Budicin (oil), and Albert Handell (pastel & oil). His 28 years of experience in commercial art and photography, including several years as a motion picture film animator, have served him well as he demonstrates excellence and versatility in the media of pastel, watercolor, oil, and photography.

Mike is a master of colorful, realistic portraiture of people and landscapes of the Southwest, especially the mountains, rivers and plains of Texas and New Mexico. His impressionistic, representational and award winning oil and pastel landscapes and portrait paintings can be viewed in our art gallery. Mike specializes in traditional family portraits and portraits of children.
