ABOUT MICHAEL W. HENSLEY
Emerging from my creative cocoon
For forty years I put my artistic passion on hold as I worked my way through a career in advertising. As a founding partner in an agency that today is called GYRO, I was given the opportunity to collaborate with some amazingly creative people, work in Europe and Asia and support some of the largest and most beloved brands in the world. I am glad for my time in advertising, but I am also glad to be out of it.
Not Retired, REFRESHED
I now attack every day and every painting with the energy of an emerging artist. That energy is powered by those 40 years of pent-up artistic desire and a world-wide base of experiences.
I challenge any notion that emerging artists have to be young and naïve.
