Hello! My name is Michael Volpicelli and welcome to my webpage!
I have always loved to draw and I remember that while still young, I enrolled in college courses still a junior in high school. It was very nerve-racking being the youngest person in the classroom but it really helped me to flourish as an artist. However once I started going to school for fine arts in college, September 11th hit and I ended up joining the military and took a break from my artwork for a while… Or so it would seem… While in the military I ended up designing certificates of appreciation, and creating works of art for my Sergeant Major’s, drill sergeants, and even fellow soldiers. I was the combat “artist” of 2/3 infantry, people used to joke. Later after leaving the military and after suffering a pretty bad injury I used my art to help me recover and I reenrolled back into Oklahoma State University. While here I went on to study at the Fine Arts and further learned to polish my work.
At the age of 30, and thanks to a lot of support received from my beautiful wife, I decided to further my artistic career. It was a tough decision because it can be difficult starting your own business while suffering from a back injury, but I would like to share my work with others, so thats what I plan to do!
