Mike Sweeney's M.F.A. (1990) from the University of Connecticut begat an interest in social engagement and bridges between visual and textual literacy. He has engaged dual careers in public libraries and schools as he pursued exhibition opportunities nationally. After training on the job in antique furniture restoration in 2015, Mike’s recombination and synthesis of common materials through craft technique has become more integral to his work.

Mike's feature in Rag & Pulp, a book about paper and paper artists from Uppercase, explores his work, process, and ideas about paper weaving, printmaking, and the relationships between meaning and informational noise.

Mike is a member of the International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists.
