About me - scroll down to see me at work

 

Hello

 

First of all Thank You for visiting my website-we already have something in common-we like art!

I used to do a lot of natural history drawing and painting,and although I still enjoy doing that I'm also turning my attention to other things-it's good to branch out and try other subject matter.

 

I am mostly self taught but studied a diploma course in Illustration between 1992 and 1995 at Telford College, Edinburgh.  However, art took a back seat for many years and for many reasons. My life changed for the better once I met my wife,Angela-she was the one person who believed in me and gave me the encouragement to start being creative again.

Life's too short to be sitting around and not fulfilling your purpose.

 

I'm always thinking of new ideas and I definitely feel it's an opportunity missed If I haven't sketched something in my book.

 

I hope you enjoy looking through the website and please get in touch if there's anything that catches your eye or if you have an idea for a commission.

 

Thanks for looking

 

Kind Regards

 

Michael

 

 

 

This is a binturong in Colchester Zoo, where I had a wonderful experience as a 'zoo keeper for the day.'   It was incredible to get up close to this comical creature. I could have spent all day watching him. He was such an interesting character.
