Mike Kopach retired from American Greetings as a Technical Illustrator. While in his teens he started using pen and ink, graphite pencil and water color as his mediums of choice. Mike’s subject matter was driven by his love of history, especially railroad trains, either steam locomotives or diesels. A self-taught artist, he has worked diligently to perfect his drawing style. His studio is in a reproduction of a railroad depot he constructed in his back yard. There he is surrounded by railroad memorabilia, which inspires his artwork.
