Michael F. Conroy
I have been painting intensively and developing my style for 20 years. Four of my pieces have been made into limited edition prints. These are entitled, 'The Rooftops', 'The Dwellings', 'Garden Houses', and 'Dusk Shine'.
I use oils, watercolors, acrylics, and charcoals. Please visit my Present Day Art gallery on this website. New and unique photos of my work will be added as I create and paint them.
I have held shows and exhibited my works in different venues, and my artwork (originals and prints) are presently being sold in galleries throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding areas.
Profile and Credentials
I was born in St. Paul, MN and was three when my family moved to Mahtomedi, MN where we lived on the shores of White Bear Lake. I graduated from Mahtomedi High School, and studied at the University of St. Thomas for one year. I have taken art classes at the University of MN and the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. My art continued to progress by studying under artist and college professor, Renee Travis Reilly, at her Minneapolis studio.
Philosophy and Comments
My original art pieces include pop art ideas, and modern orientations. My work has been influenced by Matisse, Cezanne, and Warhol, among others. My oil paintings are more traditional and my watercolors combine abstraction and unique subject matter. In my present work, art motifs are represented and are modernized and unified in a combination of pop art and conceptual art.
Work Hours and Fee Schedule
Any of my art work can be bought framed or unframed, and pricing varies, plus shipping and handling. I am available for commission work. If you are interested in classes, adult or children, please contact me to discuss.
