Michael Cox is a landscape oil painter. Born, raised, and currently residing in New Jersey, Cox only began painting fours years ago. Inspired by his artistic daughters, he began to teach himself how to paint. Since then, Cox has turned his basement into a personal studio where he creates his works. His art emanates his love for nature and the world around him. Cox draws inspiration from nature photography and the places he has visited, particularly the US east coast from Maine to Florida.
