In 1968 Michael attended the Columbus College of Art and Design and in 1972 received his BFA. Taking his degree, Michael and his Canadian wife went to Vancouver B.C. Canada where he started out on a successful forty plus year international career in advertising design. In 1986 after working as the Sr. Graphic Designer at Expo 86, Michael relocated to Portland, Oregon with his family and in 2002, Michael and his wife Nancy settled in Cannon Beach. As Michael Tieman sees it, “The role of an artist from the dawn of time has been as a visual storyteller. The stories my paintings and sculpture tell are ones of confidence, strength, passion, playful sophistication and the celebration of life.” Tieman has sketched and painted since childhood and has spent over four decades as a working artist, both as a graphic designer and a fine artist. Following the encouragement of a gallery owner, Michael expanded his talents into bronze sculpture. Tieman’s sculptures are unique in that they are a combination of traditional figurative sculpture and his Impressionistic painting style. 'My work is a combination of all of the techniques I have employed over the last thirty plus years in graphic design and fine art. In painting, I am concentrating on the medium of acrylics on canvas, refining my 'early impressionistic' style of thick bold strokes of colors, strong abstract design, movement and texture, impasto over washes, and accents in the primary colors. And in my sculpture, I am taking that same impressionistic style and molding it in the clay. I feel that artists are visual storytellers, we begin the first chapter and the viewer rewrites the story each time they get involved in the art.'
