Michael  sullivan

Michael Sullivan is a father of four and a grandfather of ten grandchildren. He loves when his grandchildren tell him about their days.


He was born on the South Side of Chicago, IL in the early 70’s. At an early age, his mother recognized his artistic gift and invested in it, but without community and academic support from school, he abandoned his artistic gift.


While incarcerated, Michael reached for his state issued pencil and paper and began rendering shades of gray into beautiful portraits of his loved ones. It was then that his autodidactic journey began. Since then, Michael has obtained multiple certificates and is currently working towards earning his second degree in Arts Education and Activism through Northeastern Illinois University’s University Without Walls. He works hard in hopes to make his family proud of him; and to let them know he is trying to be the man he was meant to be.
