Michael McDonough began his creative career as a songwriter and recording artist leading regionally successful rock groups in Nashville, Tennessee. 
After years of appreciating and collecting art, Michael began to express himself through painting. Countless hours of discovering and perfecting his technique revealed a sense of color and depth that surprised many of his contemporaries. Like many historically significant artists, he moves freely between abstraction, using color as a means to create emotion, and an Expressionist approach to subjects such as seascapes and landscapes.
Today, Michael lives near San Francisco. His solo and group exhibitions have been held in Northern California galleries including The Artist’s Alley, Lush Life Gallery, 57th Street Gallery and U20 Gallery. He specializes in customizing art for businesses and home owners by working directly with Art Consultants, Real Estate professionals, Interior Designers/Decorators and Home Stagers. 
His work is also on display at many corporate locations and online at thegallerylife.com and www.yessy.com/artforms.
