Naples is an artist from Wheaton, IL. He earned his
BFA degree from the American Academy of Art in Chicago. In 2001
he was accepted into the Society of Illustrators and published
in their annual.
For the next decade he filled his time doing various illustration
jobs, murals, and many, many commissioned portraits for people
all over the US. But it wasn't until a chance encounter with
an article about Daily Painting that he found his passion for
oils. He began his own Daily Painting Project in August 2006
and hasn't lost a bit of momentum.
Michael has won several awards and had numerous articles published
about his paintings. These Daily Paintings have been purchased
by collectors all over the world including Australia, United
Kingdom, Canada, Sweden and almost every state in the US.
When Michael is not behind the easel, he enjoys spending time
with his beautiful wife and daughter.
