artist biography Michael McCarthy
After having been raised in bucolic Ithaca, New York, I've had the great privillege of living in many different locations in the U.S. and Europe where I have had the good fortune to find university teaching positions with some regularity.

My first real experiences with art making took place in Paris nearly thirty years ago and ever since I've drawn great inspiration from my travels and periods of residence in different locations--including more than four years living in Italy (including in Rome, Palermo, Cortona and Florence). In France I've had the privilege of living in Paris on three different occasions as well as in Cannes for one year. Two years spent living on the island of Paros in Greece also left an indelible mark on my art work.


I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of Vermont and then a Master of Fine Arts degree from Tyler School of Art in Photography where I also devoted considerable time to Printmaking.

My photography work is represented in Paris by Galerie Duboys.

Take a look at some of my art and photo projects and graphic design work.

I offer private and small group photography classes and workshops in Paris through my Atelier Vagabond website.
