Jerome Michael McLaughlin is a formally trained visual artist, photographer, entrepreneur, and author. His work, both written and visual, explores the vast uncertainty inherent in the universe and our clumsy but noble attempts to assemble a sense of structured order through the operation of individual human consciousness.

Jerome Michael challenges us to rethink our position within the world and to embrace our own personal authority as a unique, free-thinking, and independent being in possession of a nearly supernatural superpower: The capacity to change our own mind.


For the past 35 years, Jerome Michael has crisscrossed the globe seeking answers to the conundrum of conscious existence - the very meaning of being. Along his personal journey of solace and self-discovery, he has collected pieces to the enigmatic puzzle of human consciousness, and the age-old questions of salvation refitted and reformulated into a workable approach to life – a life lived with purpose.


Jerome Michael currently lives in the serene and soulful hill country just west of Austin, Texas.
