I love living near the saltwater marshes of South Carolina's lowcountry. These beautiful natural landscapes will be preserved forever and are filled with wildlife year round. I hope my paintings bring a little of that natural wonder into every family that owns one of my pieces.

Getting to Know J. Michael

Michael Kennedy is an oil painter based in South Carolina who captures the grandeur of sunsets in his lowcountry landscapes in an impressionistic style. His passion for painting stems from a life-long fascination with drawing and color. After receiving a BFA in Graphic Design, he worked in advertising for 14 years as a designer and later Art Director and continued to study painting. He begins his landscapes by preparing his canvas with a thin wash of yellow ocher. Then, he sketches a rough layout, brushes on thick layers of paint, finishing with the sky. Rather than capture a specific place, his paintings are meant to capture moods from solitude and peace, to wonder and surprise.
