Michael studied graphic art and design in the late 1960’s, and then worked as a freelance illustrator. Michael is a tutor of watercolour and acrylic, and has had many solo exhibitions.

Michael’s paintings are in many galleries throughout the UK, and he has had work in the R.I. and R.A. summer shows. Michael’s work is in many private collections also.

He loves the gentle transient light which the English climate provides, the coastal scenes that offer great subject matter, with areas of richness and ever changing reflections. His aim is to convey a sense of atmosphere, perhaps leaving passages of the painting understated.
