Michael White started drawing at age 2 and never stopped. He was published by age 10 and at age 14 he was impressively hired to draw courtroom skecthes for Rock HIll, South Carolina’s Evening Herald. At 17 he became the youngest Pastel Portrait Artist to ever work at Carowinds amusement part on the SC-NC border near Charlotte. That same year he was accepted into the Ringling College of Art as an illustration major. During his time in art school he continued to work with pastels as his favorite medium especially for Landscape and Figure painting. By the time he graduated he had been featured in the Ringling College magazine, been published nationally multiple times, won several awards, honors, and scholarships. 

Since art school, his success had contined to esclate while he has worked hard to develop and refine his skills with soft medium and pastels. Currently Michael is living in Sarasota, Florida enjoying a successful career in commercial illustration. He does everything from cartoons, comic, and caricatures, to logos, album covers, and editorial art. In addition, Michael has been teaching drawing and painting at The Ringling College of Art for almost 30 years and at Wildacres for 20 years. When he’s not traveling the world gathering inspiration for his pastel paintings, he can be found grooming his Japanense garden at his home studio in beautiful Sarasota, Florida.
