APRIL 6, 2019: Mickey Asche, Acadian Menagerie
MICKEY ASCHE, born in 1963 in Louisville, Kentucky, moved to Louisiana as a teenager with his family. Following in his father’s footsteps he went on to work as an aviation mechanic. In 2005, shortly after Hurricane Katrina took his home, Mickey suffered a knee injury. During that time, he began painting. He taught himself watercolor and soon moved to oils. Growing up in Southern Louisiana, he was immediately drawn to depict the rich wildlife this area has to offer along with the vast numbers of bayous, marsh and swamps. Soon after picking up a paintbrush, Mickey left his career in aviation to paint full-time. A saying he lives by, Jump off a cliff and build your wings on the way down, has allowed him to soar, competing with the nation’s top wildlife artists. In 2008 and 2010, he was awarded the honor of being the Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival poster artist. His paintings are on display at the Madisonville Maritime Museum. Mickey is a member of The Society Of Animal Artists and has been invited to show in national wildlife shows in South Carolina and Alabama.
