ABOUT THE ARTIST
A self-taught artist, Michael started painting 16 years ago at his wife's suggestion and hasn't stopped since. He draws his biggest inspiration from Cape Cod's landscape and as a result, has painted several locations within this peninsula he proudly calls home.
A painter and photographer, he loves traveling to places with charm and personality. Italy is his favorite foreign location but he can't picture living anywhere except Cape Cod, which he says "always offers many surprises".
"Many people who see my work tell me they wish they saw things the way I see them. I do not know how they see them, but I view my world through passionate eyes. I do believe that what I see is not as important as what you see." - Michael Helfen
