Michael Marrinan, although born in London, England, was eager to travel from a young age. He wanted to experience ‘the world’. He has lived in the Middle East, Spain, the Bahamas, the Cayman Islands and in Thailand. He has been a resident of Provincetown since 2000.
“I always had a sketch pad in my bag wherever I went. I have always been fascinated with nature but more so its colors. In my art, I try and capture, in a blink of an eye, a passing cloud that casts a shadow. I enjoy the fact that people can relate to the mood of the painting; its essence rather than what color the sky is, if you know what I mean.”
Locally, Michel’s original works are represented by the Cortille Gallery, 230 Commercial St and his reproductions can be found at Lobster Pot. Restaurant.
