ANNIVERSARY GIVE AWAY!!!!!!
Be sure to also keep a copy of your receipt once you've ordered from me directly or through my online stores & galleries because this June 2013 marks my 8th year in business & to commemorate that achievement I'm going to be giving away 8 autographed prints of my Golden Lion print! Each will be hand signed & on the back will be the limited edition number. For all of the information check out this page.
Are you looking for a beautiful wildlife, Egyptian, Celtic knot or fantasy painting that you can purchase framed & matted so that all you have to do is hang it up? Maybe you're looking for a special gift? Are you tired of artists & designers who respond to your request with an automated message or take several days to return a call or email?
I'm very pleased to announce that thanks to all of your votes I am one of the two winners of the Anata Gallery art contest for May 2011! With the help of all of you who voted for me my work will now not only be featured in their gallery book but also be appearing on the cover of the book which means terrific exposure that money can't buy! I thank each of you who took the time to vote for me, to have your friends & family vote for me as well; it means a great deal to an artist to have that kind of public support.

If so, then you have found just some of the MANY reasons to go with Mike Sexton Studio for all your art or design project needs. My name's Mike Sexton, owner of Mike Sexton Studio, formerly known as Birdman's Designs, in Northeastern Kansas, USA. I'm an artist that uses digital painting as my main medium. I strive to make each of my paintings look like oil, acrylic & water color paint has been used & I do this without the aide of fancy filters & my work is available for framing for you to enjoy in your home or business. I specialize in creating original paintings & gifts that include such themes as big cats, wild birds, wolves, Egyptian, Celtic knots, fantasy & more.
I've never asked for any sort of recognition but I'd be lying to you if I didn't find it very cool to get noticed once in a while for my hard work and for this reason I'm very proud and honored to have been awarded my Second Bel-Art's Excellence Award! Considering only 3 out of every ten websites judged get this award and this being my 2nd award from this wonderful art community; the first having been awarded to me in 2006, I would just like to say thank you and let everyone know this is just another reason to come to Mike Sexton Studio for your art and graphic design needs!
