Quorum Gallery


Join us at Quorum Art Gallery on January 3rd from 6 pm – 9 pm for Art Walk and meet our featured artist of the month, Mike Kinney.


Mike lightheartedly explains, “The only thing I really know about art is that I enjoy the creation of a fine painting. My education and profession were focused on engineering sales until my wife gave me a painting kit when I retired; and the suggestion that I had better find something to do with my spare time, putting paint on canvas had never crossed my mind.”

“I still have limited knowledge about art and the many great artists of the past and present, but my appreciation for fine art has grown significantly and the joy for painting landscapes and seascapes continues to grow. My buddies now tell me I’m finally using the right side of my brain and my wife appreciates me keeping busy and out of her space.”

“I am a contemporary abstract artist residing in Southern California with an education and background in Depth Psychology and Expressive Arts Therapy. My roots stem proudly from Lafayette, Louisiana, where my love for God, family, nature and creativity first bloomed. I graduated from San Diego State University, then received a Master of Arts degree in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute and was certified in Expressive Arts Therapy. As an Expressive Arts Therapist, yoga teacher and mother of two young children, for several years I painted as a private release, and was ultimately urged to exhibit my work.

My artwork evolves from an unfolding of the personal and the spiritual, and a journey of sinking beneath the surface of the evident. I yearn to reveal the beauty in the flawed, and the balance between embrace and surrender from a deeply connected perspective… My process is a call to trust, surrender and embrace what is revealed.”
