About the artist

Originally taught by his father in oils, Michael is mainly self taught in watercolours. Being a graphic designer for 40 years was a very good grounding for handling pencils and paint brushes. He began by painting birds, in great detail. After some years he started using the technique 'wet on wet'.

He used this method to produce many paintings that have appeared on Xmas cards, calendars and prints.

He has exhibited at the Mall Galleries in London and galleries in the home counties.

Michael now lives in Normandy, France.
