...with calm, grace & exceeded my expectations!

“Michael created for me amazing holiday business cards to send to my clients to keep me top of mind. I was admittedly hard to please, asking for numerous changes, but he did all of them with calm, grace & exceeded my expectations! I would not hesitate to hire him again for his incredible services.”

Dan Newmark, Presentation Specialist

Hire him in a minute!

“Michael’s work is not just brilliant and in impeccable taste and sense of compositor, it is visually engaging and really gets the message across. I really appreciate his work and him as a person and designer. Hire him in a minute!”

Neal Raisman, Chancellor Briarcliff College

He is charming, engaging & a true gentleman!

“As an art enthusiast… Michael’s work is just a perfect addition to my wonderful collection. As a person Michael is a pleasure to interact with. He is charming, engaging & a true gentleman!”

Linda Hamilton, 3 Time Golden Globe Nominated Actress

He is an artist enamored of the Goddess

“Although his use of grisaille in dramatically cropped compositions could signal a stylistic kinship with David Salle, Apice’s approach to womanly curves is romantic rather than pornographic; he is an artist enamored of the Goddess rather than the bimbo!”

Ed McCormack, Gallery & Studio Magazine

Michael's style exhibits extreme sensitivity

"Michael's style exhibits extreme sensitivity... high emotion between his subjects and viewers. While his painting technique may wow audiences, he keeps the viewers attention by evoking an experience.”

Alli Rufrano, International Photographer & Professor
