Plein Air painting at Fort Snelling, near Minneapolis, MN

A brief history

I was born and raised in Owatonna, Minnesota and currently live in Minneapolis, Minnesota with my wife and two good dogs. I was employed in the advertising industry for almost 20 years before launching the Michael Sweere Mosaic Company in 2005.

When I'm away from the studio I enjoy visiting America's national parks, collecting folk art and skateboarding.
