Michael Swearngin
Michael Swearngin’s work has been featured in multiple museums including the Pearce Museum, Corsicana, Texas, Desert Caballeros Western Museum, Wickenburg, Arizona, Booth Western Art Museum, Cartersville, Georgia, Rockwell Museum of Western Art, Corning, New York, The Phippen Museum Art of the American West, Prescott, Arizona, Kimball Art Center, Park City, Utah, and The Museum of Western Art, Kerrville, Texas.

Michael Swearngin's interest in the American Cowboy began at a young age. Michael was born in Olathe, Kansas in 1959, and in his youth his grandfather taught him the heritage of the cattleman and rancher. Michael's family moved overseas for six years where his father and mother traveled throughout Europe. There his interest in painting began. Moving to San Antonio, Texas in 1973, Michael began his art career. Spending sixteen years there influenced him to develop the rich colors and textures in his contemporary style of painting.

Artist’s Statement
“Driven by design, I use simple shapes to establish a strong composition on the canvas. I then work the under-painting with dramatic color and texture for high visual impact. It is through my art form that I intuitively paint to express the worn rugged spirit of the American West in my contemporary style. Every painting is an exploration of these experiences and my objective is to share them with the viewer."
