Robert Michener was born in 1935 in the small, farming community of Preston Minnesota. Michener’s work has been shown in numerous solo and group shows in Canada, the United States and Europe. His works are included in more than two hundred public, corporate and private collections in Canada, the U. S. and Europe.

“Landscape has been my primary motif for more than thirty years. In the art of painting, the landscape motif symbolizes the conceptions and feelings people hold in relation to nature. I choose to paint landscape because of my boyhood intimacy with nature and because I believe that the most urgent challenge facing humanity is to discover a viable way to live with nature…”
