Greetings! My name is Michael Apelt. I am a 55 year old self-taught artist from Germany. I became interested in abstract and contemporary art as a way of escaping the gray walls of this place. Art helps me express my artistic talent, which I use as a tool to help pass the time in a productive, positive, and uplifting manner.

I have been an artist for about 27 years, using mostly colored pencil and paper. I recently started painting on canvas and, with the help and encouragement of my legal team, feel I'm making great strides in matching my painting ability with that of my pencil with pencil. 

Art has a way of providing me a certain amount of focus in abstract images and style of colorful expressionism. I think each of my paintings tell a personal story of both common and special relationships and memories that I hope will be appreciated.

Your generous support will help me with art resources and rehabilitative programs. I have many ideas for more work and welcome the challenge of any special requests from my viewers. Thanks for re

Hello and welcome to my listing at PrisonArtWare.com. I am excited to share with you, some of my recent paintings; there are more on the way so "♡" and add me to your Favorites then check back often. 


For 19 years I have desired to try my hand at painting. Due to Arizona prison policy, however, I was allowed only cheap colored pencils and pens. I love to create images that grab the viewer's attention; I call it the "Izzat Factor", defined as the factor that commands adoration...you know it when you see it.


So even though I was limited to pencil and pen, I still got busy creating (some of those images are profiled here). Art is therapeutic for me, and provides an escape beyond the prison walls. 


I'm glad to say that the "pencil-and-pen-only" era ended with a civil suit in March 2017 that allowed me to purchase acrylic paint and supplies--wow! It has taken me some time to learn the different mediums (my work and style are self taught), but I absolutely love it. My parents (Cindy and Jim), as Well as my legal team have been super encouraging and supportive in getting me this far in my creativity (I couldn't have done it without you guys-thank you!). 


Thank you for being here. I am available to all viewers and want to create work you will support. Show me what you like and I'll keep them coming. 


Sincerely,


Scott D. Nordstrom
