Welcome to the Long Island Artists Community
Michael Killelea
Michael Killelea was born in Brooklyn, NY and currently resides east of there on Long Island where he devides his time between painting and teaching watercolor classes. He is a US Navy veteran and an avid outdoorsman. His work reflects a keen interest in all of the natural world, but particularly the waterfront and those caught in its spell. Having spent most of his life on or near the water, boatyards, ships, eddies and the people who fill them offer him an endless supply of potential subjects. Killelea's approach to the medium is one that revels in the changing light and moods of the outdoors that is, in his view, best captured in the spontaneity of watercolors.
