ABOUT

I am an artist and designer working in the fields of product, advertising, and publishing. With 20 years of experience and close to 1000 published pieces, I meet challenges with knowledge and love. If you asked my clients what I excel at, they would probably say that I'm able to take any subject and produce beautiful imagery that tells a story. My education includes a bachelor of fine arts from Colorado State University. I love art but my wife and three kids are what make my life truly rich and adventurous!

TESTIMONIALS

"Mike Heath always brings it.  No matter how complex our concept may be, or how big a challenge a book’s plot line is, Mike Heath brings ingenuity, unusual POVs, and creative brilliance to every photo-real cover he creates for us. 'This one is perfect for Mike Heath' is a common refrain when discussing artist commissions. And not only does he create arresting covers, but he is a dream to work with: clear with his ideas, and always on time. Magnus is truly awesome.”  Elizabeth Parisi & Team / SCHOLASTIC / Creative Director 

"Mike Heath is the kind of illustrator professional I love to work with: he's receptive, creative, and always manages to understand the heart of the work."  Jessica Tribble / AMAZON PUBLISHING / Editorial Team 

“Mike Heath is a supremely talented creative professional who has delivered on every challenge I’ve given him. He tackles creative briefs with gusto, often presenting ideas and solutions that I hadn’t even considered. And I really appreciate how timely and communicative he always is.”  Theresa Evangelista / RANDOM HOUSE / Art Director  

“Mike always dependably delivers unexpected and inspired art that hits the nail on the head.”   Eric Fuentecilla / PUTNAM BOOKS, PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE / Assoc. Art Director
