Although he currently resides in Queensland, Australia, Michael Cahill originally grew up in Southern California, his passion for painting, history, mythology, and the exploration of far off places have taken him all over the world. Michael's love of reading anything he could find started at a young age, and through reading he felt compelled to draw and paint the images that his imagination was creating. He is inspired by the stories of pirates, great explorers, adventurers, fantasy books, science fiction characters, and everything in between.
Now having spent 20 years working on award winning projects as an Art Director, Illustrator, and Production Designer for some of the biggest media companies in the world (Warner Brothers, Microsoft, and Nintendo) he's begun to branch out into the world of art licensing. His first series of paintings released by The Mountain are based on his love of personas. Wouldn't it be fascinating to be a Viking, Centurion, Explorer, or even Christmas Elf?
