Mick Gronek



 Mick Gronek

Mick Gronek is engaged in explorative processes rooted in the traditions of painting and influenced by printmaking techniques. His works are personal interpretations of contemporary abstraction. After recieving his BFA degree from UC Riverside he began to experiment with patinas on various metals to create a process of “chemical painting”. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions including juried shows by critic Peter Frank and artists Judy Chicago and Laddie Dill. He received his MFA degree from Claremont Graduate University and his artwork currently is represented by Fresh Paint Art Advisors in Los Angeles, California. He divides his time between San Jacinto and Portland, Oregon.
I have always loved art in all forms because of the richness and dimension that it adds to my life and I enjoy sharing this with my students. Through many years of teaching, I have developed a systematic approach to the curriculum that offers opportunities for students of all levels and abilities. I derive immense satisfaction in seeing the development of the students’ technical skills for creative expression and in turn the confidence that what they strive for can be achieved.
