About The Artist
While art has been Mike Engle’s passion for decades, prior to his career as a full-time artist, he employed his creative and artistic drive for over thirty five years as a real estate developer throughout Southern California where he built over 4,000 houses. He created communities that were both aesthetically and practically pleasing, resulting in numerous design awards.
Mike received a great deal of his art education from practical application while working with some of Southern California’s greatest architects, landscape architects, land planners, interior decorators, creative directors and color consultants.
Mike holds an M.B.A., from California State University Long Beach, and a B.S. in Finance from California State University Northridge. Mike has also participated in many art history and art appreciation courses at CSUN, UCLA and LBCC and is a past member of the Board of Directors of the Long Beach Museum of Art.
