A native of Colorado, Michael Arterburn’s paintings, pottery, and sculpture reflect his love of the region. Self-taught, he has spent over forty years traveling and painting the Rocky Mountains. Painting on location (Plein Air) and in his studio.
The influence of the Rocky Mountain Region is apparent in much of his work. People, wildlife, landscape, still life and fantasy are the subject matter for most of his paintings and faces, whimsical figures and animals are woven into a continuous variety of pottery. Complementing his painting he also sculpts in clay, metal and wood.
Michael along with his wife and daughter own a gallery in Westcliffe, Colorado where many of his pieces are on display.
