Mike Mayone

Well known for his paintings of local landscapes and architecture, Mike Mayone is recognized for the impressive realism and surprising detail he achieves in much of his artwork. Mike’s scenes are inspired by the magnificence of the region that surrounds him…and he relishes capturing, preserving and sharing the rural beauty of Vermont.

A self-taught artist, Mike is very capable in acrylics, oils, watercolor, pen & ink and graphite and works in an unusual diversity of painting styles as well. However, a large showing of Mike’s original artwork is rare because his time-consuming style limits the number of originals he can produce — and the fine art he often creates on commission is rarely seen in a public exhibit.

Mike offers original paintings and drawings, limited and open-edition lithographs and archival giclées and note cards produced from his original work. Selected retailers, shows and galleries–such as the Brandon Artists Guild–showcase Mike’s art and provide the opportunity for collectors, or anyone, to own and admire a piece for themselves or to give as a gift. Mike welcomes visitors to his studio (where you may make purchases, if interested) and his website. His artwork can be found in the collections of many delighted portraiture and fine art customers coast-to-coast and internationally.

Mike lives in East Middlebury with his wife, Denise and their son, Max. Mike has an active volunteer firefighter since 1980. He has worked with the Middlebury Fire Department for well over half his years in the fire service, and was named Addison County’s “Firefighter of the Year” in January of 2007.
