Michael Swearngin’s interest in the American Cowboy began at
a young age. Michael was born in Olathe, Kansas in 1959 and in his youth his
grandfather taught him the heritage of the cattleman and rancher. Michael’s
family moved overseas for six years where his father and mother traveled
throughout Europe. There his interest in painting began. Moving to San Antonio,
Texas in 1973, Michael began his art career. Spending sixteen years there
influenced him to develop the rich colors and textures in his contemporary
style of painting. Michael now resides in Scottsdale Arizona. Combining his
interest in contemporary art with the fading heritage of the American Cowboy,
he expresses these experiences to others through his art. Michael’s fluid
acrylic paintings create unique imagery inspired by the rugged spirit so
vividly seen in the west. Michael gives thanks to God for his many gifts and
faith; to the cowboys, friends, and family – especially his grandfather,
Lowell, and father, Charles Swearngin. They have supported his art career and taught
him to keep the heritage of the West alive through his Contemporary cowboy
