MAN BEHIND THE PAINTBRUSH
Michael Riley-Hill grew up in a small rural town outside of Easton PA. This is where he found his appreciation of nature. He was fascinated by architecture and buildings he would spend hours sketching and painting in his youth. Michael attended Kutztown University where he developed his talent for painting. His unique method of painting one small area of the canvas at a time was questioned, but discovered to be part of his innate talent for detailed paintings.
Michael works primarily in watercolors and acrylics. People are often fascinated by the detail of his work. There is so much to be seen. His watercolors are rich and vibrant accounts of ordinary life, sometimes gritty, sometimes picturesque. Michael is a truly diversified artist.
