Michael Lyons is an award-winning illustrator and painter whose work has been called "stark," "heroic," and "darkly beautiful." He grew up in Denville, New Jersey, where he began painting under the direction of his mother, an artist herself. He later honed his skills at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design. Michael's coastal landscapes and isolated people and objects focus on the beauty and wisdom of solitude rather than the occasional loneliness it brings. In 2007, Michael was awarded the highly competitive C-Scape Dune Shack Artist Residency. For one month he lived alone in a remote shack on the Cape Cod National Seashore without electricity, running water, or indoor plumbing. The experience remains a personal and artistic milestone that continues to inform his work. He lives in New York City.
