Classification: Youth 12 & Under
At the age of 3, Mikel's parents thought he couldn't color in the lines, the crayon was all over the place. His mom drew a circle and asked him if he could color inside the lines...and he did! So he was left alone to do his own thing. By the age of 4 it was apparent he had a gift. At age 5, Mikel was a winner in The Parent Paper drawing contest. His artwork has been on display in several art exhibits in his home state of New Jersey. Althought he enjoys painting and clayworks, his medium of choice is pencil drawing. His current interest is drawing action comics. When he grows up he would like to be a video game designer. This 11 yr old 6th grader lives with his mom, dad and brother, Justice.
