We are so thankful to be able to support our local Rhode Island artists by offering them a showcase in 2 of our offices, Narragansett and Jamestown. For April, we have Michael Pekala showcasing in our Narragansett Office and Jason Hamel showcasing in our Jamestown office.
Michael Pekala of @michaelpekalaart. Michael lives in West Warwick, RI with his wife and two young children. Full-time graphic designer and current RISD CE instructor, Michael always makes time to paint and illustrate – something that he absolutely loves. Born and raised in West Chester, PA he attended school at both Boston University and RISD and has been living in Rhode Island for close to 20 years. Michael finds inspiration in nature, animals, and lighthouses, working in a variety of media from pen and ink to most recently acrylic paint on upholstery fabric. A sense of whimsy can be found as a uniting thread across his wide breadth of work.of nature that surrounds us, right down to its tiniest treasures.
