I was born in Huyton, Liverpool and drawing and painting has always been in my blood as far back as I can remember. I studied Art and Art History to A Level standard...gaining an 'A' in each subject. I then went on to start a Foundation Course at Carlisle College of Art, but affairs of the heart put pay to any serious study and I fled to Europe and became a travelling artist and busker, managing to get by. Just! Moving from city to city, country to country and experiencing life on the road...to the full. After many years living the bohemian life-style, I eventually met and married Sarah, with-whom I am still very happy. Life moved on and the fickle finger of fate pointed to a more sensible way of making a living ! I decided to take a leap of faith and do what I've always dreamt about doing and became a full-time artist in December 2009, though I have been selling artworks for many years. Although I have had several exhibitions, I must say that the Artgallery.co.uk has allowed me the certain kind of freedom that I so relish. I am inspired by the world around me. Landscapes, people, nature and animals. Even in the ugliest corner of town you can find a little ray of light if you look hard enough. The majority of my paintings are drawn from my imagination.... strands taken from many trips around the country and abroad, walks around local fields, farmland and industrial sites. Beauty can be gleaned from a simple shaft of light on a distant horizon or a cloud formation. I hope you enjoy looking at my work and I assure you of the highest quality of workmanship, materials and service if you do choose to purchase any of my original paintings. All my work is done in acrylics (it's far more flexible and versatile than oils) and painted onto cotton stretched canvas. I paint the edges to match the painting itself and, they are quite easy to hang. You'll just need picture brackets or 2 level nails or screws to allow the paintings to hang flat against your wall. Thank you for viewing my gallery...I do hope you find something you love for the walls of your home or office.

Browsing artwork and buying is made very easy. I bought a painting and had it delivered to Finland. Everything was fluent from start to finish. Would use again anytime!

Did what it said it would do.

Artwork

A powerful piece. The frame is off white, not as it looks on the Web. It contrasts the darker image beautifully. When spotlighted, the colours spring to life. Lovely. Unusual. Moody.

Artwork

A stunning piece of art that cannot be faulted. I bought this as a present for my husband's 40th birthday. At the time I wasn't sure what I wanted but after searching most of the internet I came across Michael's work and knew straight away that this landscape was perfect. The images online give a good first impression but on receiving the piece it is clear that they do not do it justice. The colours are bright and vibrant and every time we look at the piece we see something new. This piece is a

absolutely love the painting-the impressionistic feel, use of colour. My only criticism would be that it is more blue in reality-still love it but wish the photograph could give a true impression of the colour palette.

very simple and straightforward to purchase, and a huge range of paintings and prices. I would just like to see that photographs being a truer colour reflection, as mentioned above.

The painting looks wonderful in our lounge. The room itself is very neutral, so the vibrant colours stand out.

Excellent and highly personal service - the company are very approachable and the ability to show paintings in different styles of room via a tool on the website is a great idea, when one is trying to envisage how they would look at home.
