Hi, I'm Michael Barrett

I completed a Master of Fine Arts at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where I ostensibly studied painting and drawing. I began working with digital imagery almost exclusively by the end of my degree.

While in school, I began to learn (very) basic web development and eventually found my way into a software development career, working primarily as a front-end engineer but also working with web service and API development in Java, C#, and Python.

In recent years I have a renewed interest in viewing art, making art, and thinking about art. This newsletter records some of that journey while also touching on other subjects here and there. I write once every week or two.
