The art and life of Michael Turner
Michael Turner was raised in Arizona and except for a 4 year tour in the Navy he has called the Verde Valley home. Michael's father was born in Prescott and graduated from Clarkdale High School in 1928. Michael has a long family history in Arizona and considers this his spiritual home.
Trip for art sake
In 1998 Michael and his wife Crystal had an opportunity to spend some time in Missouri which gave Michael the time to make a move into more artistic work. Michael had been involved in the art scene in the Verde Valley, but in a limited way.
In Missouri, Michael had the time to expand his work and experiment with different media to discover just which direction he wanted to take. He found Rainbow Mylar and lampwork.
