Meet Mike Carroll

Mike Carroll

Mike Carroll

Mike Carroll lives on Lanai, where he was lured from Chicago by the splendor of the Hawaiian Islands. He has a lifelong passion for art and nature. His original oil paintings and prints reflect this passion. They celebrate Hawaii and invite the viewer to explore her enchanting beauty.

After earning a B.A. with Honors in Art at Western Maryland College, Mike attended the School of Medicine at The Johns Hopkins University where he was awarded a Master’s degree in Medical Illustration. He enjoyed a twenty-year career as a professional artist in Chicago where he received national recognition for both his medical and non-medical art. His work was featured in the prestigious Print Regional Design Atlas and Communications Arts magazines.

Mike’s main focus is to share a sense of Hawaii and its people. He says, “The beauty of Hawaii unfolds in large panoramic vistas, and in the smallest, most intimate studies. If the ability to convey the beauty of a subject comes across in my paintings, if you are able to see what drew me to paint the canvas, then I’ll have succeeded in sharing my vision of Hawaii with you.”

MPAPI Committee


Maui Arts League is excited to offer two plein air painting workshops in conjunction with the February, 2018 Maui Plein Air Painting Invitational. Both professional artists excel at ‘teaching.’  It is one thing to be a great artist, and yet another to be a superior instructor. Our workshop teachers are selected from the group of MPAPI professional ‘visiting artists’. Leon Holmes from Australia and Morgan Samuel Price from Florida will share their painting knowledge and techniques with  workshop attendees. You won’t want to miss out.
