Meet YOUR Local Artist – Michael Sorrentino

Michael Sorrentino is a PA artist who works in a multitude of mediums including: oil paints, watercolors, pastels, pen and ink, and sculpture. In his current series of pictures, watercolors and wax crayons were used to “scribble” impressions on watercolor paper of the Pennsylvania landscapes. The coloring technique called wax-resist and is similar to how crayons and colored dyes are used to decorate Easter eggs. 

Michael Sorrentino grew up on Long Island, NY. He moved to NYC to attend the School of Visual Arts, earning a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Illustration in 1997. After working as an artist in NYC for many years, Michael returned to SVA to earn a Masters of Art in Teaching (MAT) degree in 2004.

Moving to North Abington Township, PA in 2006, Michael has continued to work on his own private collections. “The natural beauty of rural PA has been a great inspiration to me. It feels important to try to capture the imagery I see when driving through the countryside. Every direction you look is a ‘picture postcard’.”

Michael enjoys being a part of the NEPA arts community. He is a former art teacher at the Howard Gardner School Multiple Intelligence Charter School and volunteers for various art programs and events held at the Everhart Museum. Michael is also active with Greenhouse Project and proud to serve on its Board of Directors.
