Flawless eyebrows, eyeliner and lipstick! 

The attention to detail is astonishing. Notice how the eyelashes are messed up from the liquid.

The lines and wrinkles of the skin are done to perfection.

Astonishingly, Mike started painting at the age of 3!

His mother noticed his skills very early on due to the brilliant sketches he would create.

Mike sold his first piece at 7/8 years old to a family friend!

We can’t get over how realistic the hair strands are…

…and also the skin!

Here is Mike in action.

Looking into the eyes of his pieces is just mesmerizing. 

We would love to have some of these pieces hanging up in our homes!

Though, we would definitely struggle on what paintings to choose!
